Sunday, April 29
8:30 AM – 12:30 PM
I’ll be the first one to admit that Sunday’s weather wasn’t very inspiring. It was cold, the wind was stiff and it might as well have been mid-November. I woke up and checked the weather on my weather app and wanted to pull up another cover, go back to sleep and dream of Pelee. Sometimes, even the guide struggles to get out of bed in the morning! A tough grind of a run the night before, leaving me feeling like I was hit by a truck by the next morning, likely didn’t help with the whole uninspired feeling. However, as per usual, the warm clientele of EOB made the trip enjoyable. Phew! We birded Britannia and, ya know, it wasn’t half bad considering the conditions. We admired four species of swallow hawking for insects over Mud Lake; that was neat. We also saw a roosting Eastern Screech-Owl and plenty of Yellow-rumped Warblers, and a Pine Warbler. All in all, we made it through the cold temps and high winds, saw plenty of birds, and had fun. Thanks, Team EOB!
