I went to Rondeau, heading for the South Point Trail first. I wanted to check on a few big trees, and of course was always on the lookout for birds. The former was satisfying, the latter was less so. The most interesting avian feature was about 800 Red-breasted Mergansers, and about 40 Commons, 'fishing' off the southeast beach area.

On my way to the north end of the park, I noted a Bald Eagle circle over Lakeshore Road. As I kept an eye on it, I saw that it landed in a fairly open dead tree with good light. Out came the camera.
The trails are fairly quiet right now, but it won't be long before trails such as this one will be busy with birders and hopefully birds as well.
