Canadian Point Lagoons and Miramichi Marsh April 15, 2012

We finally saw the Eurasian Wigeon in the upper lagoon. The 3 Buffleheads were in the lower lagoon. There were perhaps almost 3 dozen
Ring-necked ducks (mostly males), a few Goldeneye, an American Wigeon (M), a Mallard (M), pr Green-winged Teals, a Pied-billed Grebe. and some Canada Geese.

At Miramichi Marsh … a dozen or so Treee Swalows arrived late evening yesterday or overnight. There was not much else that was new but there was a lot of activity. 8 Ring-necked Ducks, only two Mallards obvious, 2 A. Wigeons, 1 Green-winged T., Grackles, R-w Blackbirds, Song Sparrows, Robins(2), Crows (3), Chickadee (1) 3 Pied-billed Grebes and at least 2 were calling, and of course Ring-billed Gulls. One pair ofCanada geese seem to have settled on a nesting site … on the nearest somewhat overgrown, perhaps abandoned Beaver lodge. Deana and Peter
