Kayaking Cedar Creek in Kingsville
Just a short posting about a quick paddle I took at Cedar Creek Conservation area.
I kayaked this gorgeous area about 6 times last summer, but did not have a blog at that point. I'm not sure if last summer was a 'bumper crop' of birds... but comparatively, today the place was barron! Not only did I see few species of birds, but few of the few that were present (if that makes sense). I did not even see/hear a Belted Kingfisher! (last summer, they lined the shoreline, one every 250m).
I did see:
Great Blue Heron (3)
Great Egret (1)
Spotted Sandpiper (1 ... Lifer! #176!)
Ring Billed Gull (1)
Red Winged Blackbird (many)
Mallard Ducks (4)
On a positive note, ERCA put in a gorgeous new Canoe/Kayak dock.
