Birded cell 3 today and was rewarded with one Baird's Sandpiper and two Piper Plovers. Also present were numerous Semi-palmated Plovers, Killdeers,Lesser Yellowlegs, a few Short-billed Dowitchers, and one American Golden Plover.
The long waterway from the Roberts Rd entrance had many Great Egrets, Pied-billed Grebes, Caspian Terns and one Red-necked Pharalope. The same waterway towards Lake Erie had many Double-crested Cormorants and one Common Loon.
The King Rail was spotted by three observers at the Vermit Unit ditch (next to a tractor) at 8am but missed by me.
Two adults were spotted in May so hopefully the rails are starting to establish regular nesting activites at Point Mouille.
An adult Bald Eagle was spotted while biking searching for the rail(s). Look for an island of trees.
Regards and good birding.
