Lesser Yellowlegs – Karl Egressy









This afternoon between 2 and 4 pm my dad and I drove the 9th Line of Douro/Drummond Line. Highlights were 3 Virginia Rails on Drummond line about 200 m N of highway 7. The rails were in a scrubby swamp, mainly filled with alder, and only called after I played the tape a couple times. There were 2 Lesser Yellowlegs with 11 Greater Yellowlegs on the 9th Line just north of Old Norwood Rd in a flooded field on the WEST side of the road. Mather’s Corners had a pair of Gadwall as well as lots of Northern Pintail, Green-winged Teal, Ring-necked Ducks, American Black Ducks, and American Widgeon. There was a Common Raven at the dump.
