With the fall migration in full swing I have been keeping my eyes out for interesting and unusual birds passing through the area. I haven't had much luck the past few days, but that's the excitement of birding, you never know when something rare will fly by! In the meantime, here are a few shots I've taken the past couple of days in the Waterloo and Fergus area.
I had just got home from work and heard that a snow goose was reported from the Nexans ponds up the road from my house in Fergus, so I made the short drive up and snapped a few shots. It was quite far away and the shots are taken at full zoom so forgive the graininess. I designated this as an ebird birding hotspot a little while ago and I'm happy to see some unusual species showing up here! I will have to check it as the fall progresses to see what else turns up!
