Let's get started on the 'C' birds.
I have put the Common Loon in first place,
because these birds are only seen in our area as they migrate
through in spring.We have a small lake just west of Morden,
and the Loons stop in there as they journey north.
On April 20,2007 Jake and I counted 24 Loons on this lake.
What a thrill.
The Cedar Waxwing is a most beautiful bird.
The plumage looks silky,and these birds are very sociable.
They most often travel in large flocks.
In order to show the beauty of these birds,here is a single bird striking a pose. An early spring visitor is the Chipping Sparrow. I look forward to their return,as they are not afraid of humans. We usually see them all spring and summer,foraging for food near the house. The Common Yellowthroat is perhaps not that common. They are more secretive,but once you have heard their 'witch-i-ty,witch-i-ty,witch-i-ty' song you will not forget them. A brightly colored male Cape May Warbler is always a welcome sight. We do not see the Canada Warbler every year so it was special to get this shot. This bird is described as wearing a black necklace. Last,but not least,the Canada Geese. From early spring to fall migration the Canada Geese are abundant here. The first signs are the long v-formations in the sky,and soon every puddle of water has at least a pair of geese on it.
