Hi All
 
Another trip along the shore between Port Elgin and Southampton produced
some interesting birds this afternoon, the least of which was the 2 Long
bIlled Dowitcher which were seen on Mirimichi Bay. The two birds were very
coperative as they moved closer to the shore giving me clear views of them. 
Also present were 
3 - Black bellied Plover, 
2 - Kildeer, 
3 - Semipalmated Plover
3 - Greater Yellowlegs
20 - Double Crested Cormorants
300 - 400 Canada Geese
100 or so Gullls both Herring and Ring Billed
approx. 40 Mallards 
5 - American Goldfinch feeding along the shore
 
To get to Mirimichi Bay take the 10th Conc. of Saugeen west from Hwy 21
between Port Elgin and Southampton. Turn right at the first intersection and
tarvel a short distance along the road to Mirimichi Bay. The road winds
around the bay. The second bay is Horseshoe Bay. You can see Chantry Island
in the Back ground. 
 
Yours in Birding
