- 2 adult Bald Eagles over Dalrymple Rd at Whipoorwill Lane, minutes later another adult Bald Eagle perched just east of Dalrymple Rd on Alvar Rd.
- 1 juvenile Bald Eagle over Prospect Rd just north of the hydro towers.
- 1 N. Shrike along Prospect Rd south of Palestine Rd.
- 1 N. Shrike along Rockview Rd south of the dump road.
- several Rough-legged Hawks and a couple of N. Harriers on various roads.
- 2 Cackling Geese, 44 Hooded Mergansers, 3 Bonaprte's Gulls and a Grn-winged Teal on the east side of the causeway on Mitchell Lake.
- 7 Trumpeter Swans on Canal Lake
- 1 very nice and only feet away male Pileated Woodpecker on Avery Point
- 35 Greater Scaup on the lake beside Avery Point.
- 50 Cedar Waxwings along Alvar Rd east of Wylie Rd
PS - I don't recommend that anyone drive Alvar Rd ( we did :>(( ) as it is filled with flooded (some very large) potholes and the marsh area east of Wylie Rd has a long flooded area with the stream flowing over and along the road.
We were also told that Wylie Rd is not so good and I feel that it is probably flooded at the Sedge Wren Marsh and of course it would have a lot more muddy areas than Alvar Rd and a lot of pot holes as well. Replies: There have been no replies.
