I'm sure most of you within the birding community are aware of the spectacular birding happening out of the Hamilton area this past week, the highlights being a Shearwater!, all 3 Jaegers, Sabine's Gulls and Black-legged Kittiwake among others.
I went birding after work on Thursday and Friday this week, and saw lots of very distant Jaegers, but unfortunately none came in close enough to ID. We did however, get awesome looks at a juvenile Black-legged Kittiwake that whipped by.
The winds were fierce on both days, building the waves to over 2m.
I also stopped by Thickson's Woods last week looking for birds and instead found this Giant Puffball mushroom! There were several of them scattered throughout the woods.
I also found this cute little female Black-throated Blue Warbler.
I'm looking forward to a nice Thanksgiving with my inlaws in Stevensville next weekend!
