This report is for Twp. Road 400 west of Range Road 3050 at Buzz Lake. Estimated that Wind speeds increased to approx. 60 km/hr and Temperature reached 21 degrees Celsius. I would like to suggest that ebird provide the option to list species twice, i.e. to list CANG nesting & CANG flyovers. The largest body of water that is bisected by Twp. Rd. 400 is locally known as Buzz Lake. It is at it's lowest level in the 10 years that I have been visiting the area. I expect that it will completely dry out by the end of summer in 2019.

  3. Cackling/Canada Goose

    Number observed: 100

    Comments: Could have probably identified these, but they all flew off with some GWFG as I arrived and my focus was on the Tundra Swans, which remained. They had been quite close to the grid road, which bisects the slough (lake).

  4. Number observed: 8

    Comments: Strong winds likely caused this group not to panic when the mixed flock of CANG & GWFG flew off as I approached in my vehicle.
