Wednesday, December 15: The first local Christmas Bird Count of the season was held today. The Lakeshore CBC covers the area between Peche Island and the the Windsor airport east to Belle River. Despite the lack of open water on Lake St. Clair this year we recorded 70 species. American Wigeon, American Pipit, Red-shouldered Hawk and Eastern Towhee were new species for this count. Complete results are in LakeshoreCBC2010.pdf.

Monday, December 5: Ojibway's field trip to Point Pelee on Saturday, December 4 was very successful. We saw 61 species of birds including 2 Golden Eagles, 1 adult Northern Goshawk, Rough-legged Hawk, red phase Screech-Owl and all three scoter species. On the way back to Windsor there were 2 Snow Geese and 28 Greater White-fronted Geese on the Canard River (between Malden Road and County Rd. 8). By Sunday up to 47 white-fronted geese were counted by some observers.

Friday, December 3: Visitors to Ojibway's feeders include Northern Cardinals, several Tufted Titmice, House Finches, White-throated Sparrows, American Tree Sparrows, Fox Sparrow (1), Pine Siskin (several), Dark-eyed Juncos, Blue Jays, White-breasted Nuthatches, Downy Woodpeckers, Red-bellied Woodpecker, Hairy Woodpecker (1) and lots of Black-capped Chickadees, American Goldfinches and House Sparrows.
