Hi All,

I spent a very pleasant 2 hours at Miramichi Marsh this morning. The trails are now in very good condition. I saw only 12 bird species which is to be expected at this time of year I suppose. Ducks: American Wigeons 8 – the mother and 7 ducklings that have been seen throughout the summer no doubt, now fully grown, Green-winged Teals -7, Mallards 8, Hooded Mergansers 2. Shorebirds – Greater Yellowlegs 2, Pectoral Sandpiper 1 (we think), Red-winged Blackbird – flock of 13 passing through on their way south I should think, Song Sparrows – 8 or so, Savannah Sparrow 4, Crows 6, Starlings 7, Ring-billed Gulls 110!

Peter
