The Snowy Egret is being observed on a daily basis.  It is most often seen in Horseshoe Bay which is the bay immediately north of Miramichi Bay.  From hwy 21 just north of Port Elgin, take Concession 10 toward Lake Huron, turn right on the first and only road, follow it around past Miramichi Bay to Horseshoe Bay.  Look toward Chantry Island and the egret is most often foraging in the outlet to the lake.

The Western Meadowlark is still being heard on Dyer's Bay road very occasionally but to the best of my knowledge, no one has observed it recently.  One Dickcissal is still being heard and observed in the same area on a regular basis.  Take hwy 6 north to Dyer's Bay road, turn east and drive to Crane Lake Road, stop and listen, search the fields for the next mile on either side of Dyer's Bay road.

Sparrows, waterfowl, warblers and other passerines are busy raising young but can still be located throughout the region with patience.

Good birding,
