While I was home for lunch, I received a call from Bruce Nott informing me he had found a near breeding plumaged RED-NECKED GREBE at Algonquin Park in Newburg. I zoomed right over where I met Bruce and we had great looks at the bird. Thanks Bruce! From there I returned to the Black Dirt Region to search for geese with Karen Miller and Matt Zeitler. We had a great afternoon. We couldn’t find as many Snow Geese as this morning, but we had great views of the 1800 or so that we found. Among them once again was a TUNDRA SWAN! We had a good time sifting through all the birds hoping for something exciting, but nothing new. The Tundra Swan was a lifer for Karen so it was a special bird. A great day of birding with some really nice people.
