The prothonotary warbler is still a very regular visitor to the Tulip Tree 
Trail. At least four different birds have been identified by their leg bands. 
They can be be seen between post 7 and post 9.

A moulting summer tanager has been reported along the Harrison Trail today 
just south of the Visitor's Centre by three separate groups of birders. With 
most migrants leaving the park overnight and this morning, these two are still 
entertaining the birders.

Other notable species are the whip-poor-will that sang in the campground last 
night and the common nighthawk that flew around the campground at dusk last 
night catching moths.

Two great horned owls could be heard calling just outside the park gates at 
4:00am and an overhead flight of a sandhill crane this morning on the Tulip 
Tree Trail surprised many.

In the next week, birders are reminded that many shorebirds are due in. Keep 
an eye open along the farm fields before you enter the park, for many 
different species of shorebirds.

Directions to Rondeau;
Take Highway 401 to Exit 101 south and follow the signs to Rondeau.
