Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] 30 White Fronts, Pt. Colborne
2-18-18, Pt. Colborne (Canada) -White Rd. just N. of 2nd Concession -4 White FrontPond/Inlet (water) on Lake St. just before entrance to Nickle Beach -26 White Front - a photographer on White Rd. said they go back & forth between here & the Miller Rd./White Rd. locations. Saw these a short time after the White Rd. birds & don't think any were those. ~4:35 they flew & after a semi-circle flew NE (towards White/Miller Rd.). I then went back to Miller & 3rd Concession arriving in time to see a bunch landing. Then a little later while scoping 4 more(?) joined them. Hard to get exact count in corn stubble but ~27. Most of these were found ~10 days ago by Blayne & Jean on Lorraine Rd. Mourad counted 30 at Miller & 3rd Concession ~1-1/2hrs. earlier. Considering all the ebird reports there could be more than 30 in the area. Perhaps they will stay awhile longer & be joined by even more.
4 Mute - not so mute & very accustomed to people feeding 'em.
