I did manage to get a really good look at a Belted Kingfisher. I watched it for quite some time hoping I would get to see it fish...wasn't meant to be. I did see a couple flocks of Common Redpolls (life bird!) fly over...thanks to the hawk counter (Jason, I beleive) for pointing them out. The Wilson's Snipe were still around, so on my way back to my car, I tried to sneak up on them to get a picture, but all I managed to do was flush them.
From there, I drove County Rd. 20, stopping a couple of times (Memorial Forest, Big Creek Site and Pettite Cote) but didn't see anything noteworthy. I decided I would stop in at Ojibway and at least check the feeders since I didn't have a lot of time left before needing to be home. I am so glad I did! I didn't see anything new, but I got some great pictures...
