Long Point, Ontario (on Lake Erie) -- March 12th, 2011

Some of us from the Pickering Naturalists Club went to Long Point to see what migrating waterfowl would grace us with their presence. Reports as early as the morning of the day we arrived reported 1000s of Tundra Swans in the area. Alas, they left before we arrived at the prime location. They probably got tired of all the birders & photographers staring at them through their scopes & cameras.

Nonetheless we had a good day and did see 100s of Tundras in small flocks and many others looking for scraps in the somewhat frozen cornfields. Also saw Shovellers, Red-Wings, Robins and a few others.

We stopped for lunch-- I don't think anyone had a BELTCH but it sounded pretty good.

This shot of a pair of Red-Wings is very grainy but I like it enough to include it.
