I drove down to Long Point today and had a reasonable day for waterfowl.
Highlights included about 100 tundra swans and 1 sandhill crane at Turkey
Point Lookout. At the beginning of Big Creek Marsh, there were about 50
tundra swans as well as 9 sandhill cranes. Pictures of the birds can be seen

Large flocks of diving ducks (thousands and thousands) were staging in Long
Point Bay starting around Turkey Point.

 

At Old Cut, a fox sparrow and white-throated sparrow were singing.

 

Good Birding
