Sept 4th at 11:30 am there was a WHITE-EYED VIREO still on territory at
Wheatley Provincial Park! The vireo was singing in the same general area it
has been present since late June when found by atlasser Martha Allen. The
bird was singing its heart out, apparently unaware that the Atlas was over.

Wheatley Provincial Park is 1 km southeast of the town of Wheatley in
extreme southwest Chatham Kent (at the northeast corner of the Pelee
peninsula). It is accessed via Klondyke road just east of the liquor store
in Wheatley. The vireo hangs around the main access road to the western
campgrounds. This road crosses a small bridge at the north end of a creek
where there is a small viewing platform on the south side. The vireo was
about 150 metres west of the bridge in the scrubby area adjacent to the road
edge.

Good birding.
