The sand dunes were definitely a highlight of this area. We saw a few Monarchs sheltering in he dunes, this one happened to fly by as I was taking the shot!
Birds weren't making much of an appearance here, so I photographed a few mushrooms, to be ID'd at a later date...unless you know what they are?
I also spent Sunday and Monday morning birding a little bit around the Fort Erie shoreline and Niagara River. I walked through the beach grass and stirred up whatever I could. I didn't see anything rare but managed to find lots of sparrows, the odd warbler, pipits, Wilson's Snipe, Marsh Wren, a late House Wren and lots more!

Coming back from my bird watching trip, this little bird greeted me at the door.
It was a great Thanksgiving weekend spent with great people, food and of course...birds.
