The day started out in humour as we intended to look at waterfowl and there was a deep fog in our birding area particularly on the water. Never- the- less with smiles on their faces and shaking their heads our leaders marched on. Eventually the fog lifted after our midmorning coffee break. Overall we had a good day in terms of sightings (60 species). Best birds of the day were Rusty Blackbird at the McGregor Tower and good looks at the Red-bellied Woodpecker and Cooper’s Hawk at our last stop. The day was cool overcast and with moderate winds. Lunch was at Backwater Eddies in Paisley.
