Recent Trip Reports

February 24 2019 (Sunday) Fisherville Area, Haldimand-Norfolk

Leader: Dave Milsom, Barry Coombs.

Sunday 2 cars arrived at Cayuga High School for the annual Fisherville trip. No doubt most folks were deterred by the weather forecast.

Despite the winds gusting to 90 kms per hour as we reached Port Dover at noon, the weather in general did not prevent us from recording 42 species by the time we headed home at 2.30 pm.

Best finds were a single Greater White-fronted goose on Silver Lake in Port Dover, Common Grackle, Red-winged Blackbird, Brown-headed Cowbird, Turkey Vulture, Rough-legged Hawk, Northern Harrier, 6 Bald Eagles, Snow Bunting, Horned Lark, Cedar Waxwing and Eastern Bluebird.

Tufted Titmice eluded us all day.

Many thanks to co- leader Barry Coombs.
