DNCB Outing No. 2014-38 to 104th St. on BBRP Trail

Our outing to 104th St. on the BBRP dike trail was very abbreviated as it rained very heavily.  Surprisingly, we started with 12 folk, Ken B, WR Al & Pauline, newbies Liz Walker and her son, Mike B, Marylile & Rob, Otto and me.  The Wimps left after our target bird, the Ash-throated Flycatcher, refused to come out in the rain.  There was a small break in the rain so optimists Otto, Ken and I stuck around for another 30 minutes.  We saw lots of American Pipits, Black-bellied Plovers, Long-billed Dowitchers, Song, Savannah, Golden- and White-crowned Sparrows, Spotted Towhees, Eurasian Collared Doves, and lots of Ducks, including Pintail, Green-winged Teal, Wigeon including Eurasian, etc.  Rain slowed a bit, but didn’t stop entirely until later.

Sandra and I are off this morning to Niagara Falls.
Cheers: Tom


After meeting at Petra’s, Lorna, Guinness and I walked the Centennial beach loop in the rain this morning.  We saw Gulls, Mallards, Wigeon, Pintails, Teal, Yellowlegs, Crows, Herons, Starlings and White-crowned Sparrows.  No photos.

Otto continued on to Reifel.  There were the 1st major flocks of Snow Geese (a couple 100).  30,000 to go!?

About 300 or 400 Greater White-fronted Geese, 50 Cackling Geese, maybe 1000 Wigeon.
