According to eBird, almost 40 species of waterfowl have been seen at Wellington Upground Reservoir over the years. Greater White-fronted Goose and Cackling Goose are among the species. Wellington Reservoir offers handicapped parking just feet from the water. Birding can be done a few steps from your car, or even sitting in the car.
The first day of fall greeted us with the coolest morning of the season to date. Temperatures were in the low 50’s but sunny skies made it seem nicer. We were treated to excellent views of Yellow-bellied Sapsucker and several warblers along the all-purpose trail through the woods to the fire station.
Eastern Bluebirds greeted birders at the entrance to the picnic areas. A Ruby-throated Hummingbird sunned itself on a high bare branch, easily viewed by the group.
Pine Tree Picnic Area offers forest trails with a variety of colorful summer resident birds.
The Lake Erie Shore is a great place to see waterfowl and gulls. We will bird Huntington and then move to other areas along the lake shore, according to recent sightings.
