Marais Cooper

Sunny day, just regular garden birds so we went abroad to vist Marais Cooper just across the international border between Quebec and Ontario. This is a wonderful place on the shore of the St-Lawrence that is a cooperative venture between a local conservation society and Ducks Unlimited Canada. Always good at this time of the year – even if the birds are iffy it’s a nice place to walk with plenty of frogs and insects to enjoy, but usually the birds are good.

Plenty of good birds this time including Kingbirds, Bobolink (where did thet strange name come from?), Redheads, Yellow Warblers, Common Yellowthroats, Wilson’s Snipe, Swamp Sparrows, Catbirds and a Least Flycatcher, the infamous Tchebec of BPQ fame.
