Mike and I toured the Long Point area this morning and had some great stuff
(64 species).  Started out at Port Rowan with the Greater White-fronted
Goose from the overlook first thing (

Then headed to Old Cut, where we met up with the long-staying Tufted
Titmouse, Gray Catbird, Hermit Thrush, and Yellow-rumped Warbler (

Rogers Avenue, we had one of the Trumpeter Swans in the area, sleeping on
the ice (http://ebird.org/ebird/canada/view/checklist/S33686786).

Leaving Old Cut, we had an imm. Red-shouldered Hawk and a Ruby-crowned
Kinglet at the Crown Marsh Trail (

At Port Royal, we had (presumably) the same Greater White-fronted Goose
flyover in a flock, as well as another Gray Catbird (

along Lakeshore, just west of Turkey Point we had the long-staying imm.
dark-morph *Calurus *Red-tailed Hawk and a Fox Sparrow (

marina we had a female-type Surf Scoter (rare in Norfolk) and Ruddy Duck (
