Weekly report from the Cabot Head Research Station of the Bruce Peninsula 
Bird Observatory
(September 2nd – September 8th)


The week started rather slowly. However, a Connecticut Warbler was banded 
the 2nd. This same day, a Red-throated Loon and 3 Red-necked Grebes were 
seen on Georgian Bay. The first Bonaparte Gulls of the fall were seen the 
day after.

After the passage of the cold front on Thursday the 4th, waves of migrants 
came through in good numbers. Especially numerous were the Black-Throated 
Green Warblers, American Redstarts, Red-eyed Vireos, Black-capped Chickadees 
and Red-breasted Nuthaches.

First for the fall (either seen, heard or banded) : Cape May and 
Bay-breasted Warblers. Also, the first big flocks of Canada Geese are 
starting to fly south.

In the morning of the 7th, lots of bats were migrating.

Cabot Head Research Station is located near Dyer’s Bay, on the Bruce 
Peninsula. Acces to the station is limited. Please contact us for a visit.
