Under the very capable leadership of Blake Mann and Maris Apse (both of
whom are away from their respective computers until late Sunday evening),
25 enthusiastic birders shared a very enjoyable day of early spring birding
and fellowship in Rondeau Provincial Park.  Seventy-eight (78) species were
recorded as of 3:30 p.m.  Highlights as follows:
  
Warbler/Vireo:  Nashville, Yellow, Magnolia, Yellow-rumped, Black-throated
Green, Blackburnian, Palm, Black-and-white and Common Yellowthroat
Warblers, the vireo species included Blue-headed, Warbling and Red-eyed
Vireo. 
  
Woodpecker: Red-headed, Red-bellied, Downy, Hairy and Northern Flicker.
  
Glamour birds:  Red-headed Woodpecker (at least 5) and Baltimore Oriole.
  
Participants also enjoyed some fine and close-up views of a soaring and
perched adult Bald Eagle - always a nice feast for the eyes!
  
In closing, thank you to Blake and Maris for whetting our appetites for the
more "birdy" days that lie ahead of us.
