The fog lifted and the winds were calm allowing 11 enthusiastic birders to spot 35 species at the Clearview Eco Park
and the Minesing wetlands area.
Included in this list were…
sandhill cranes (hundreds)
great blue heron
hooded and common mergansers
bald eagles (juvenile)
Also spotted were several active leopard frogs on the banks of the Mad River and
1 muskrat in the wetlands
The outing went into overtime but no one minded.
Thanks to Lucy for helping guide.
