I drove down to the area last Friday, in the midst of our drenching rainstorm that dumped a months worth of rain in 48hrs. I wasn't expecting to find many birds in the rain, but was able to find a few good ones.
|This Cliff Swallow looked so miserable, and must have been really cold as temperatures were in the single digits.|
This Eared Grebe hung out on the east beach of the Point for a couple of days while I was there. It floated by my quite close to shore, but large waves hampered me getting any great shots.

On Tuesday May 9th the dam finally burst and we had lots of warblers and other great birds including 3 different male Summer Tanagers! This one gave phenomenal views and appears to be a nearly fully adult bird.
Scarlet Tanagers also arrived in good numbers.
In the next post I will detail the highlights from Pelee Island, stay tuned!
