Hello Ontario,

For the first time in my life I not only heard but saw a Sora & Virginia 
Rail in the Cranberry Marsh.  An American Coot made his appearance as well 
as a Ruddy Duck.

Then south of Newcastle today I observed 2 Common Loons swimming into the 
harbor of the Port of Newcastle while dining at the Brig Restaurant.  What a 
view that made my lunch taste all the better.

Once arriving home I observed 4 young Robins in a nest outside of our dining 
room window about to fledge.  That will be a second brood already for our 
place south of Newcastle.

Directions:  Highway 12 exit south in Whitby to Victoria St. and west till 
Halls Rd. and turn south to northern platform of Cranberry Marsh.

By Newcastle take exit # 430 south on Mill St. and drive as far as the lake 
but look at address for Robin nest as well as Ruby Throated Hummingbirds, 
Baltimore & Orchard Orioles.
