Great Blue Heron – 02 Feb 2023 

Clear skies welcomed the day, yet however the winds did so. I had the strategy to drive to Pt. Mouillee in the very early mid-day to stroll along the North Embankment, yet building and construction on the bridge at Waterfront Park triggered me to reverse as well as backtrack to Campau Rd. as well as Lake Erie Metropark. Though the canals were iced up the Fantastic Blue Herons

were out active. This bird was beside the damaged bridge as well as flew off as I made my means throughout the ruts in the roadway. With the 600/4 lens I was also close, yet obtained wonderful comprehensive photos as it flew off.

An additional heron got on the vehicle driver side of the canal yet was gone when I showed up. Numerous extra got on the ice a hundred backyards away.

As I drew right into the HQ car park one more set of Great Blue Herons got on the ice in the canal. I photographed one bird from the vehicle driver side of the automobile while the various other one needed to wait up until I knotted the car park as well as returned.

While driving the frozen car park I discovered yet one more Fantastic Blue Heron beside the monitoring system on the ice. It was quite backlit yet quite, still! A minimum of the bird simply outside the fencing was far better lit. I drove down Lee Rd. as well as strolled to Cove Factor at the south end of Lake Erie Metropark. Winds were solid sufficient to maintain me from investing much time there, yet the boating of Canvasback as well as Redhead extended virtually a mile long as well as phoned number 20,000+ ducks. A couple of spread Bufflehead, Common Goldeneye, Black Duck, Mallard, as well as loads of Expanse Swans as well as Mute Swans

As I went back to the automobile I identified a number of American Tree Sparrows

in the phragmites, yet could not photo them well as a result of the wind blowing the 600mm lens around like a sail.

A loophole via the sanctuary produced absolutely nothing, as did a loophole via Elizabeth Park.

Tomorrow’s projection asks for single-digit temperatures as well as windchills listed below absolutely no, yet Saturday as well as past require a warmup towards the 50’s following week.(*)
