Unfortunately something is amiss with the Information Line machine today as it is not answering. I am in Halifax and not able to take messages from the machine, but can take email messages.

Am editing the BlogSpot solo today so apologize for any errors. Hopefully all will be back to normal within a few days. Will leave following message as was part of the action to report it.

Brian Stone and I were both in Halifax on Friday and headed to Hubbards to try to have an audience with the Tundra Swan that has been there for several days foraging on grass in the area. We did not locate it. A recent heavy snowfall covered the grassy areas and we could not locate it in the water. The nice bonus prize was a Horned Grebe that cooperated nicely as it very actively fed. Brian got a photo of it with prey appearing to be possibly a small eel.

A visit to Sullivan’s Pond and Morash Pond in Dartmouth found lots of waterfowl noting a very significant number of Black Ducks with the mallards and a very ready for spring pair of American wigeon
