The bird outing this month took place in the Little River Ferry area. Our route took us on a loop, from the Little River Nature Sanctuary Pond, through a subdivision to the seashore, along the shoreline to the ferry terminal, which we crossed over to get to the mouth of Little River. We then walked up the Little River until reaching the subdivision once more and returning to our cars. Lots of bird sightings meant rather slow progress along the route, but we spent the time quite enjoyably, always happy to make our next bird discovery. The draw to this area is the exposure to a number of landscapes, each having its own birdlife, so we generally see a good variety. The excursions list?: Red-winged Blackbirds, American Robins, Great Blue Herons, Mallards, Song and White-crowned Sparrows, Northern Flickers, Spotted Towhees, European Starlings, Crows, Ravens, Gulls, Juncos, Bewick's Wren, American Wigeons, Eared or Horned Grebes, Red-necked Grebes, Red-breasted Mergansers, Buffleheads, Common Loons, Rock Doves, Pine Siskins, House Wrens and Bald Eagles. Lots to discuss at our Tim Horton's debrief.
