Sightings for Thursday November 1

St-Stanislaus de Kostka: I saw a Pacific Loon (Plongeon du Pacifique) in non-breeding plkumeage about 400m along the Beauharnois Canal from the Hungry Bay parking lot. Also in the same general area, a single Red-throated Loon (Plongeon catmarin) (immature) and a further seven over in one group going east and around 26 Common Loons (Plongeon huard); nine Red-necked Grebes (Grèbe jougris) up to 50 Black Scoters (Macreuse à bec jaune), three White-winged Scoters (macreuses brune) and a single Surf Scoter (Macreuse à front blanc). Also along the cycle path 30 Snow Buntings (Plectrophanes des neiges) and two showy Tufted Titmice (Mésange bicolore).

Earlier in the day I'd been at Les Coteaux but the wind had shifted and there was not much to report from there, just a couple more Red-necked Grebes (Grèbe jougris)

At St-Lazare sand pits 1 Dunlin (Bécasseau variable) and 4 Cackling Geese (Bernaches de Hutchins) in with the Canada Geese (Bernaches du Canada) in the morning before they head out to the local fields.- Mark Dennis
Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu: Barnacle Goose was present at 8:30 this morning across from rue Cayer
