Glossy Ibis and Little Blue Heron
I took my longest trip of the year yesterday with a 7AM departure from Portuguese Cove to Little Dover. I took the highway route to arrive at Little Dover and returned home driving down the spine of our province through Trafalgar, Middle Musquodoboit, Musquodoboit, Grand Desert and Lawrencetown. I arrived home after 7PM but the trip was successful. I found the four Glossy Ibis immediately. The Little Blue Heron arrived after about twenty minutes anxious to pose for me as well. Some of my photographs were so distant and at such high magnification that they suffered from motion blur, not my motion, but the birds.
After I visited the waders I enjoyed a walk around the Gully at Canso uneventful except for some Greater Yellowlegs. The trip home although long and bumpy at times was more successful with; Eastern Kingbird, a flock of Rusty Blackbirds, several Ruffed Grouse, Northern Harrier, several Northern Flickers, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Tree Swallows, Canada Jay and Yellow-rumped Warblers.
