50 days of 1

This will be short and sweet. Flew into Winnipeg eyesterday morning for 2 days of work. Right now I'm in Rainy River until noon Sunday, when I gotta drive back to Winnipeg and fly home. Haven't really been able to contribute towards anything good yet, but thought I'd throw my ebird sightings your way....

Day 1 - Morris, Manitoba

Day 2 - Morris, Manitoba

So I'm hoping for something pretty cool! Harris's Sparrow will hopefully be easy, and who know's maybe a Western Grebe or Swainson's Hawk will show up for me!

I'll keep you posted!

Workin' like a boss....

It's been alittle bit since my last post. School's started, and with work continuing to be busy, I haven't had much time for a post, regardless if I had anything worthy to post!

However, that all changed today, when I was working down just east of Rock Point. I've been going down there every Tuesday/Friday. I've been checking the Mosaic-Esterhazy ponds north of Rock Point, and today was very pleasantly surprised to find an American Avocet! Better yet this was my first self-found Avocet in Ontario!

I was able to digi-phone some shots, which are needless to say rather poor, but oh well - better than nothing!

There was some 'good' butterflies around too -- singles of Dainty Sulphur and Variegated Fritilary, among hundreds (est 400-500) of Monarch's.
