Ironically, I birded Halton on Sunday morning but wasn't aware of these birds until I read this...snooze you lose, I guess. I got the Sora at 1st Line marsh and 2 waterthrush on 2nd line at Blue Springs Creek. Nice birds, Fred! I like those dowitchers a lot!

Two Sandhill Cranes were on 25 Sideroad by 2 Line today, Halton County.

Does anyone else only see a - in these posts? Just wondering. For some reason, I don't see any of Fred's pictures.

According to Ebird, the cranes I saw are the first in Halton in 20 years (for June - July). I have a few questions:

By this time of year should colts have hatched yet?
Is it possible they are a pair that bred unsuccessfully?
For Fred: you know this area better than I do. Do you think there's suitable habitat for a nest there?
If they do have a nest, is it normal for the adults to leave the nest to feed?

Any thoughts welcome! Thanks,

Curtis

I got ticked off, and deleted my last 100 posts a couple of weeks ago.

I didn't see any colts at Grass Lake yesterday, just 2 adults.

Great find.

There's a marsh nearby at Guelph Line that goes back a way. And a couple of marshes on 6th Line.

I know that field and sometimes it's damp, but I never had any good sightings in it.
