Boy I'm tired... I wish I could get paid to not work...
Some spots visited today (yesterday):
Port Dover - squat
Port Burwell - the walk to the beach was surprising with a female Pintail in the canal, then at least 35 Blackpoll Warblers feeding on some sort of berry (they out numbered the Myrtles)
--- the beach was largely void of gulls, but picked up 4 Cackling Geese for my efforts
--- Walked through a lot of the sand dunes looking for Burrowing Owl.. Didn't find any... Flushed 2 sparrows that looked exciting (at different times), but couldn't get a decent look at them... Made me angry
--- Walked the woods a bit as well.. very birdy (everywhere in ON has been birdy for a few weeks now eh?) No megas... 2 BT Green, 4 Nashville, Tennessee, 3+ Orange-crowned's were the best warbs
Port Bruce - nada
I loves me some gulls.... At least 4 Lesser Black-backed Gulls and 1 adult Great Black-backed X Herring Gull hybrid....
Highlight was a bird I couldn't ID --- very very dark mantled gull (adult) sitting on the water beyond the east breakwall... Very dark, and not a Great Black-backed Gull... Wouldn't come closer (into the harb) for a better look! (Grr ... stayed until sundown)...
Going to go back tomorrow (today) to see if I can re find it and get better looks!
One of the LBBG - a great looking juv... Other than the fact it was sick... Flies all the way from Europe (apparently) just to eventually croak at Port Stanley eh?
