Day 327 - 23rd November 2015 - Orange Crowned Warbler, Golden Crowned Kinglet and Surf Scoter

It's a wild and windy day out there - lots of rain coming down today. Going to be a rain slicker and rubber boots walk when Lexi and I go out. Guess I'm back to laundry,  housework and some computer work. Have to spend some time cleaning out photos, etc. and it's time for  a back up. I'm sure I can be productive today and get some things off this list today!
All in all Sunday turned out to be a good day. Cleared off, the sun even made an appearance, although a bit dim. We did our morning chores, me inside, Larry outside and then headed for a walk to the Port L'Hebert trail just beyond the County line. It takes you down to the Migratory Bird Sanctuary.  The woods were quiet - not even a squirrel but out in the water were hundreds of Canada Geese. Not close enough for a good photo. We left there and drove to Louis Head Beach - pretty dull - lots of waves and rough water. Then a stop at the Louis Head Breakwater - Song Sparrows and found a nice patch with Chickadees, Golden Crowned Kinglets, an Orange Crowned Warbler and a Yellow-Rumped Warbler. Did the loop back up through East Jordan stopping at the Breakwater there and found a few Loons and a Surf Scoter. Homeward bound we stopped at Cathy and Harold's and ended up having supper.
Orange Crowned Warbler - a lifer for me!

 On the Port L'Hebert trail - the loop is 2km long. Just a nice jaunt.

Enjoy your day!
