A small colony of Yellow-headed Blackbirds is present south of Mitchell's Bay, along the east side of Lake St. Clair, in the municipality of Chatham-Kent. They have been there for several days and appear to be nesting. They are quite easily heard and seen right from the road side. Other species noted here this morning include Black-crowned Night-Heron, Green Heron, Great Egret, Sora and Ring-necked Duck.

Directions: From Chatham, take hwy 40 (St. Clair St) north towards Wallaceburg. At the intersection of Hwy 40 and C-K Road 42 (Electric Line), turn west and continue to C-K Road 43 (Bear Line) and jog to the south (left) briefly before continuing on C-K Road 42 (where it turns in to Bay Line) towards Mitchell's Bay. At C-K Road 34 (Winter Line), turn south (left) as far as Angler Line. Go west (right) on Angler Line and continue until you get almost to the lake. On the north side of Angler Line is a small wetland, where the birds can be heard and seen.
