Weekend Birders,

The Lambton County Mountain Bluebird was again present this morning along 
Kerry Road.  Dwayne Murphy and I saw it just after dawn.  It was along the 
east side of the road, just as Allen Woodliffe described it yesterday.
There is not much in the way of vegetation, but the Mountain Bluebird and 
Eastern Bluebird seem to favour the few Red Cedars that are available!  For 
long periods of time, they perched on corn stubble.

Directions: from Hwy 401, take exit 109, and head north to Thamesville on 
county road 21. Go through Thamesville, and at the north end of the village, 
take Jane Street, which turns into county road 23. Follow county road 23 to 
Lambton Line (county road 22) and turn east (right) for one concession to 
Kerry Road and then turn left (north). The birds were observed along Kerry 
Road between Bilton Line and Bentpath Line.
