Earth Hour is an international "lights out" event, with the goal of having as many individuals and businesses, on a world-wide basis, turn off their lights for one hour from 8:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. on Saturday March 26, to raise awareness about climate change and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Monday, March 21: The warm spell of recent days produced our first Chorus Frogs (singing March 16) and Painted Turtles (basking March 18) of the spring. Today we had reports of Eastern Meadowlark, Golden-crowned Kinglet and Eastern Phoebe from Brad Hamel.

Sunday, March 6: Yesterday's rain created flooded fields just outside Point Pelee that are attracting hundreds of Tundra Swans, Canada Geese and ducks. One large "pond" is located at the east end of Concession D at Mersea Rpad 18. Large flocks of Red-winged Blackbirds and Common Grackles (with some Brown-headed Cowbirds and Rusty Blackbirds) were also present.

Common Redpolls have finally reached Essex County with a few widely scattered reports of birds at feeders.

Thursday, March 3: Despite all the snow that remains on the ground there are encouraging signs of spring. The resident groundhog has been making brief appearances at the centre's bird feeders. Our first Eastern Chipmunk was seen a week ago Saturday and we have had several reports of skunks. Bald Eagles are being seen at their nests and the first Great Horned Owl nest was found back in February.

American Robins have been present all winter but a group of seven on a bare patch of ground yesterday looked like migrants. Our last winter birding trip on February 19 had a few spring mirants such as Horned Lark, Red-winged Blackbird, Common Grackle, Northern Pintail, American Wigeon and Ruddy Duck.
