|A November shot|
Josh's much better hearing enabled us to pin point some 'chip' notes from the tangles, which we could then search and come up with an identification of.
By far the most common bird we saw was Red-breasted Merganser.
After our south beach trek of about 8 km round trip, we stopped at the Visitor Centre for a rest, a snack and to watch the feeder. An Eastern Towhee put in an appearance, feeding on seeds below the feeders....
Unfortunately the Brown Thrasher which was seen in the feeder area the day before, was not noticed on count day.
Fox Sparrows were noted along the roadsides.
All in all, it was a good day in spite of the weather. Every year is different. At least it wasn't raining, or snowing so hard that visibility was quite limited, both conditions which have been experienced on previous counts.
