Re(1): No Avocet, first Snow Buntings

Again NO Avocet this morning, so it has definitely left after spending 11 days at the Bracebridge Ponds. First seen in the afternoon Oct. 20 by Gillian Humphries, and photos posted on the Bird Board when seen again Oct. 21. Bob Bowles reported the bird was still there in the afternoon Oct. 30. No further sightings that I'm aware of.

There is still a major sludge/effluent operation taking place at the middle intersection into cell 3, and heavy truck traffic continues. Water levels are up in cells 1 and 2 and there is too much commotion for the birds to come in to cell 3. A nice flock of 37 Dunlin flew in from the north, but decided to keep heading south. There were still five Gadwalls in cell 1 as well as the American Coot. A lone female Northern Shoveler was in cell 2. The number of Green-winged Teal was way down, with a count of 14. Three Snow Buntings were on the roadway north of cell 4. A Red-tailed Hawk soared past west of cell 4.
