Wood Duck, Pileated Woodpecker, Merlin and more Sept 18 2010

I then went for a drive to north Pickering and ran into Laurie and Doug. We saw Wood Ducks, Mallards, Flickers and were treated to a few hawks landing in the marsh for dinner. A juvenile merlin, a juvenile northern harrier and a sharp shinned Hawk. Nice to finally meet you Laurie.

At Rouge Beach Park - 7 egrets, 6 Great Blue Herons, 1 Black Crowned Night Heron and many ducks, geese and cormorants.

Started my day at the hawk watch. Very slow today but did see the local cooper hawk. Walter and I then took off to one of the local marshes where we saw a pileated woodpecker, woodduck, kingfishers, a pair of red-tailed hawks and many many turkey vultures
