Brockville - I made several trips to check out this bird but with no sighting on Tuesday I was sure it had finally departed. Then I received a call yesterday afternoon that the bird was still there and had sought shelter out of the wind closer to shore. Conditions were very challenging, shooting through narrow openings in blowing cattails while standing in rubber boots in marsh mud, trying to maintain my balance. I had great luck in very nice light.

Ingleside - Maybe this should be entered as a pterodactyl cousin because that head and bill in breeding plumage sure suggests it. The birds returned to the same area today. I wanted to post again because this was such an unusual look.

Ingleside - A flock of six dropped in to the St. Lawrence for 90 minutes before annoying Mute Swans eventually drove them out. One or two swans made several passes at the flock while they were feeding before they took off for good.

Not the best shot, but a photo for the records. No matter which direction you looked, the area near Lake Newell Alberta just kept on producing different bird species that morning.
