Canada Sightings

The Soaring Six Adventure
26Sep 2009
Creek Road Marsh (that is what I am calling it for now)

Holiday Beach
Pelee Onion Fields
Hillman Marsh
Black Oak Heritage Park

Soaring 6 of Bob Hart, Craig Gough, Tom Shehan, Ed Lewandowski, Chris Goulart, and Bill Loomis was widdled down to the first four birders mentioned.

Winds were mostly out of the SE, not conducive for good hawk migration once again.
Highlights were the Gray-Cheeked Thrush, Philly Vireo, Warbler assortment, and duck variety.
Best birding was at Creek Road Marsh, Holiday Beach past the Carp Crossing sign, the hawk tower, and Black Oak Heritage Park in Windsor.
