At 8:00pm, Thursday, June 26th, 2003, this is the
Hamilton Naturalists' Club Birding Hotline Report. The
Hotline is normally revised on Thursday nights, unless
an unusual bird turns up in the Hamilton area. 

We have liftoff! All three of Hamilton's PEREGRINE
FALCON chicks have taken flight, even the heavyweight,
Hunter, who weighs in at just over a kilogram (almost
twice as heavy as her two brothers Jackson and Bold). 


Other than that it was another light week for reports.
A local observer photographed an immature
BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT HERON this past week at
Shoreacres/Paletta Park, as well as a GREEN HERON at
Lakeview Park in Burlington.

Other local reports include CLAY-COLORED SPARROW and
BLUE-WINGED WARBLER near Westover, UPLAND SANDPIPER on
Regional Road 3 near Port Dover, ORCHARD ORIOLE,
NORTHERN HARRIER, and SEDGE WREN northeast of Bronte
Provincial Park, a singing male HOODED WARBLER on the 
Bruce Trail about 4km west of Grimsby, and COMMON
NIGHTHAWK and CHIMNEY SWIFT in central Hamilton.

That's it for this week, be sure to let us know about
your sightings this week. Leave your name, telephone
number, as well as the time and date of your call.
Sightings can also be reported by e-mail.

GOOD BIRDING!
