YELLOW-HEADED BLACKBIRD [Carouge à tête jaune]
A pleasant surprise visitor on Wednesday morning to
the feeder yard of Louis-Emile Cormier when
a YELLOW-HEADED BLACKBIRD [Carouge à tête jaune] arrived at approximately 10:00 AM staying for
15 to 20 minutes. Then it reappeared at approximately 11:45 AM and stayed for half an hour.
It was coming to white millet and black-oiled sunflower seed. Birders are welcome to come to check
if this bird continues to visit. Louis-Emile lives at Civic Number 2780 Route 535 near Cocagne about
5 km from the Cocagne intersection; it's best to park on the road leading to the beach beside Louis-Emile's
home and watch the backyard from there. The bird usually came to a platform feeder and into yard trees.

KING EIDER [Eider a tete grise]
The Belliveaus (Norm, Gisele and Gilles) have just telephoned from Cape Tormentine to say that they are looking at an adult male KING EIDER [Eider a tete grise]. It is with a grouping of 50-100 Common Eiders just on the west / north side of the end of the old ferry wharf in Cape Tormentine. They are viewing the bird from atop a low bluff just west of the road leading out to the old ferry wharf. This bluff is reached by driving to the end of a short street (don't know the name) which goes off the main road through Cape Tormentine beside a church. If you decide to head out there and want to call Norm on his cell phone, his number is 531-5662.
