I was down in Hamilton for work this past week and I decided to try to see if I could find the long staying Snowy Egret that has been hanging out at Windermere Basin for the past month. I arrived and was told that it had just been visible but may have flown out of sight. I moved away from the viewing platform to try to see around some of the islands and found it foraging in the shallow waters at the back of Windermere Basin! I got decent looks through my spotting scope, but unfortunately it was very far to get any good shots.
It was a birdy morning in Hamilton as I also had a male Hooded Warbler singing at a woodlot in Dundas along with Scarlet Tanagers!
