This is Chris Lewis reporting.

Today, the 29th, at Shirley's Bay, a juvenile Hudsonian Godwit was
discovered at the edge of the mud-flats at the base of the dyke.
Additionally, there were 3 Killdeer, 2 Greater Yellowlegs, 9
Lesser Yellowlegs, 1 Baird's and 7 Pectoral Sandpipers and 2
Dunlin.  At least 1 of the GREAT EGRETS was still present here on
the 27th and an American Golden Plover was seen that day as well.
Two American Woodcocks were in the Shirley's Bay woods on the

At the Britannia Conservation Area on the 28th, there was 1
juvenile Black-crowned Night-Heron, 5 Blue-headed Vireos and 2
Red-eyed Vireos and 11 species of warblers.  Aside from numerous
Yellow-rumped Warblers, the others were in small numbers and
included 1 Tennessee, 1 Nashville, 4 Northern Parula, 2 Magnolia,
3 Black-throated Green, 2 singing Pine Warblers, 6 Palm, 2 Bay-
breasted, 1 Blackpoll and 1 Black-and-white Warbler.  The
diversity of birds in the Britannia Conservation Area was much
lower today, the 29th.

Ruby-crowned and Golden-crowned Kinglets as well as White-throated
Sparrows, White-crowned Sparrows and Dark-eyed Juncos are moving
through in larger numbers.  A Lincoln's Sparrow was seen in the
sumacs south of Cassel's Rd on the 28th.  A single Snow Goose was
seen with a flock of Canadas today on Moodie Drive south of
Fallowfield and going back to the 24th, 2 Snow Geese were in field
off Fallowfield east of Woodroffe.

2 Carolina Wrens have been present for two weeks, at least until
the 24th, in the Meadowbank and Crofton Rd areas near the
Pinecrest Cemetery.

Thank-you.  Good birding.
