Today an Osprey was hunting the river at MP 228 along Hwy 20, west of Vale, east of Little Valley. Getting late.
The Ontario Sewage Facility has new management. I was concerned that visitation rules may have changed, but things are the same, and birders are welcome weekdays or Saturday in the morning. Driving the dike roads gives you good visual of all the edges and the 5 ponds. Just enter the building and sign the visitor log book and then enjoy the birds. No shorebirds and nothing unusual today but perhaps some wintering waterfowl bonanza is just around the corner.
The Great-tailed Grackles that have been around Ontario at places like Pilot and Loves fuel centers, Beck park, and Walmart (some reports are still around. I saw 4 of them at the Love's center on Washington, across from the entry turn for the Ontario Sewage ponds.
