Yesterday a flock of about 50 Tree Swallows danced through the snowflakes above the Green River in Washago; the first sighting for the year.  From Hwy 169 about 2 km east of Highway 11, look to the open water to the south.  Also lots of Ring-necked Ducks.

About 5 km further east and south on Highway 169, immediately south of the Black River bridge, a flooded field has a good mix of waterfowl, including Green-wing and Blue-wing Teal, Pintail, American Widgeon, and lots of Wood Ducks.
