I was home in Kingston for Easter and decided to go to Lemoine Point Conservation Area adjacent to Lake Ontario to do mine. It actually turned out to be a lot of fun! I chose a spot that was adjacent to a wetland, the lake, open fields, and forested habitat to better my chances of getting species.
In the 1 hr I was there, Caitlyn and I were able to tally 35 species. Some of the highlights included a wilson's snipe, common loons, bonaparte's gulls and the first barn swallows of the year for me. The complete list can be viewed here:
