We are at the west end of Lake Ontario. Birding is good all year. Fall produces a flow of migrants following the shore of Lake Ontario. Wintering ducks gather here in many thousands in winter. Spring birding is very varied with many neo-tropical passage migrants. Summer can be quiet.

I have this idea that whenever I go birding there's always a Bird of the Day. Even a miserable, cold, dank day will produce something special, and it doesn't have to be rare to be special.

Sometimes two or three birds are the highlights, but there's always at least one, one that stands out because it made me think Wow!

In my blog I spotlight my Bird of the Day. If I have a photograph that relates, I'll add it.
