Even more (random) work related birding...

May 29th - Mattawa Poop Ponds... They're lined in plastic, and terrible. A male Gadwall was the only _light.

May 31st - Oh Ma God - we stopped at a landfill near Haileybury, ON and actually saw some gulls (no bears though) - Iceland Gull!

Late May Iceland!

June 9th - 2 Bonaparte's Gulls in Port Dover (that's all she wrote)...

June 9th - Townsend's Sewage Lagoons -

   - Highlights were Canvasback, Wilson's Phalarope and Least Sandpiper!

June 10th - Mosaic Ponds near Rock Point - 1 Greater Yellowlegs, 6 Green-winged Teal, 1 Blue-winged Teal

June 12th - Townsend Sewage Lagoons - 15 Semipalmated Sands, 1 Semipalm Plover, 1 White-rumped Sandpiper (I only checked the first pond).

June 12th - Great Black-backed Gull in Port Dover. The Lake Erie shoreline has huge numbers of summering gulls, but I didn't pick out much. Lack of concentration spots! Makes me wonder what would be at a place like Port Burwell or Port Stanley (or Pelee Island)

June 12th - 1 Common Merganser (male) at Nanticoke - with lots of gulls

June 16th - 1 Green winged Teal, 8 Ruddy Ducks, 1 ALBINO (ish) Mallard at the Seaforth Sewage Lagoons

June 16th - 4 Green-winged Teal at the West Perth Wetlands (not much else, great looking spot though)

Also had 2 adult Peregrine Falcons in the New Hamburg area while driving home (along the highway). Odd?!

Next batch may come from the north!

  1. That white Mallard has been at Seaforth a while!
