|It was great to finally get out and look for some birds!|
As we were just in Las Vegas in March, this vacation was a mixture of day trips and time at home. It was nice to have the extra rest and relaxation. We enjoyed a couple dinners out, saw the latest Avengers movie with friends and of course did lots of birding.
Our first day trip took us to the Port Rowan/Long Point area, where after a great morning of birding we had a delicious lunch at one of my favorite spots, The Country Fork, it's a must when in the area.
Here's a few of our sightings from a great first day of vacation. (Click on the photos to enlarge)
|Stunning male Scarlet Tanager, we saw a few this morning.|
|The "Swamp Candle" aka Prothonotary Warbler, we saw a pair.|
|I also spotted this Blanding's Turtle. He's not alone on this rock, a Bull Frog is with him.|
|Very accommodating male Hooded Warbler.|
|He was singing so hard, his feather popped up!|
|This guy is spotted using the bird baths to wash his paws quite often.|
|We had a few Ruby-throated Hummingbirds visit.|
|A Nashville Warbler pair stayed for a few days, we were hoping they were going to nest close by, but they moved on.|
