There it was.
Although it may not be as unusual as the Barnacle Goose in Schomberg, it's still a good bird to find locally.
Last Wednesday I attempted to find another lifer by heading to the Ellice Swamp to look for the White-Winged Crossbills which had been reported there.
Although I struck out on the crossbills, it was a nice evening for a walk.
The swamp usually hosts at least one pair of nesting sandhill cranes and they could be heard trumpeting somewhere in the marsh.

Last weekend I was down in the Long Point area. A wide variety of waterfowl provided good views at close range. A single snowy owl was also found on the dock in Port Rowan.
Sounds like some warmer spring weather is on the way.
