Bruce Birding Club Outing – October 8, 2009

It was an extremely windy day with rain, Birding conditions were poor. We met as a group in Clifford and proceeded to the best birding location of the day – the Clifford Sewage Lagoons. The high winds and rain seemed to be always in our face and our optics became rain covered making sighings difficult. After collecting a Long-billed Dowitcher and other shore birds we left the lagoons and drove the local area picking up a flock of American Pipits. Because of the weather conditions we started late and quit early.
