The Snowy Egret was present this morning at Windemere Basin in Hamilton -
first found back on June 12 by Cheryl Edgecombe. I can't find any mention
of it since July 3rd, so it seems to have other locations to visit. 3
Short-billed Dowitchers joined a handful of Least Sandpipers and Lesser
Yellowlegs on the shorebird front.
Directions: Take QEW west to QEW Niagara to Eastport Drive, continue over
bridge, past the 4 way stop on Eastport. The entrance to Windermere Basin
is hidden but it is on your right about 1km after the stop sign.
If you prefer to go over the skyway bridge, exit at Woodward, make a right
as you get off the ramp and woodward turns into Eastport. Entrance to the
basin will be on your left a short way down.
Walk out on the path toward the steel mills to the observation area.
