Small day southwest, April 23, 2017

Marais de St-Timothée
Bufflehead Bucephala albeola
Tree Swallow Tachycineta bicolor
Rusty Blackbird Euphagus carolinus
European Starling Sturnus vulgaris
American Tree Sparrow Spizella arborea
  Went for a late 'n' lazy jaunt down to the St-Louis-de-Gonzague area this afternoon with Dan. As per usual at this location (for some reason), Dan was sitting slumped on rocks fairly regularly - I'm going to get him a coffee I.V. on wheels for next time. No warblers, but quite a lot of icterids about - it was awesome to get decent looks at a Brown-headed Cowbird and a few Rusty Blackbirds. At Marais de St-Timothée, only one Great Blue Heron was spotted, but apparently not nesting - this time last year saw at least three occupied nests at the site.
  I may go look for warblers tomorrow, because life is short and boring.
