January 2002 Sightings
Monday, January 14: Windsor's CUPE Local 543 went out on strike today. As a result the nature centre will be closed until a settlement is reached.
Thursday, January 4: Four Fox Sparrows and eleven White-throated Sparrows were visiting the feeders at Ojibway today.
Tuesday, January 1: The Detroit River Christmas Bird Count was held today. Ice jams filled most of the bays along the Detroit River and ponds were frozen but snow cover was minimal. Highlights included Double-crested Cormorant and American Coot (next to Fighting Island), Red-headed Woodpecker (Ojibway Prairie), Northern Mockingbird (Healy St.), Gray Catbird (LaSalle), Eastern Towhee (Spring Garden Prairie), Fox Sparrow (feeder at Ojibway Nature Centre). Complete results are available on the CBC page. A very hardy Eastern Chipmunk visited the nature centre feeders today.
