On Monday afternoon, Daphne Turner and I spotted seven species of
shorebird at Silver Lake in Port Dover. Included were the HUDSONIAN
GODWIT, one LONG-BILLED DOWITCHER, and two PECTORAL SANDPIPERS. The
godwit was nowhere to be seen for quite some time, then came flying in
about 3 pm with a flock of yellowlegs.
Direction (per previous posting by Barry Jones):
Giving directions from Hamilton, take hwy.#6 to Lake Erie at Port Dover.
At the second traffic light (there are only two)turn right (north),
drive a couple of blocks to St.Patrick St. & turn left. Within a block
you will begin to see Silver Lake on the right. Park by the soccer field
& walk west along the lake.The best muddy edge is at the west end of the
lake where the godwit was.
