Chateauguay, Ile Saint-Bernard: Temperature this morning was 3 C and raining, calm winds. The 11 birders who showed up decided to start birding, hoping that the rain would stop earlier than predicted. An hour or so later six decided to call it a day. About twenty minutes later the rest of us called it quits.
A total of 25 species were found which was not bad considering the weather and distance travelled. After the days count, Two Northern Harriers were spotted while we were finishing up our coffee.
Tufted Titmouse was the bird of the day, which was decided by the remaining 5 of us.
Thank you to those who braved the weather.
