On a Rainy...Wednesday?
Ok, so some of the readers here (if there are any??? Please comment!!!) might not get the song reference that is the title today (Rainy Monday - Shiny Toy Guns), but it was indeed rainy. Nonetheless, I figured it'd be good at the Locks, so I drove down there in the rain. Luckily, I brought an umbrella, but I still got pretty wet. It was pretty good despite the rain, with 63 species. 9 species of shorebirds was definitely the highlight, with 60 birds total, not a number you usually see around the Sault! Also had quite a few Lapland Longspurs, some of which were almost in breeding plumage. New for the year were 12 Semipalmated Plover, Short-billed Dowitcher, Common Yellowthroat, Magnolia Warbler, and Canada Warbler.
