Afternoon birding along the St. Lawrence River

Date: Sunday, March 31, 2019

Timeframe: 12:30 PM – 5:00 PM

Weather: Bloody cold for the season! Hovering around zero degrees, but, quite damp. Overcast, moderate wind and intermittent moderate snowfall by 2:30-3:00 PM.

Outing Snippet

Although it was cold, damp and snowing, we had ourselves a lovely birding outing! We observed numerous species of birds, as well as observed some fascinating moments in Nature. All sorts of highlights for the day, including Peregrine Falcon, Merlin, American Kestrel, Red-shouldered Hawk, Northern Shrike, Cackling Goose and a small flock of Tree Swallows gleaning small insects (small flies, perhaps?) off of the ice! The St. Lawrence was wide open from Morrisburg west and still largely frozen over from Farran Bay Park eastward. See eBird checklists below for more details 🙂
