Lake Erie Scoters! - 03 Nov 2013
We walked down to the outfall of the power plant and saw a hundred Bonaparte's Gulls, but no unusual gulls.
I then headed Pt. Mouillee, where I found a pair of Red-tailed Hawks and a pair of American Kestrels, but none cooperative enough for photos. A Lesser Yellowlegs was foraging in Mouillee Creek, but I didn't stop to digiscope it.
Robin and I would return to LEMP later in the afternoon for a walk, but things had slowed. As we drove back to Wyandotte we spotted an American Kestrel dive-bombing a Cooper's Hawk atop a light pole across the street from the Yak Arena. By the time I could get in position w/ the scope the hawk decided to fly off. Too slow again.
