Karl Overman: Birds and more

 
 

Darlene Friedman rousted me out of my late summer birding slumber with the prospect of chasing a adult Long-tailed Jaeger on Van Wagner Beach in Hamilton, Ontario.  After a four hour drive and a bit of searching, we found the bird, at least spotting the guy scoping the jaeger well out on Lake Ontario.  The bird thankfully flew and landed on the beach close to us and posed nicely for photos.
