Early this afternoon on 2 occasions there was a male
Prothonotary seen/heard from Bennet rd. at the first viewing
The Black Vulture has been seen on and off throughout the
day, most sightings were from the visitor center area, but
it has been sighted flying over in other areas of the park
and was last seen to my knowledge at 4pm.
Directions: from Hi-way 401 take exit 101 (approx. 40
minutes west of London) follow signs south to park.
Once in the park to get the the visitor center follow
Rondeau rd. straight back until it ends(approx. 8km) then
turn left on Gardiner, follow for 1.5km until you reach the
VC on the right.
Bennet rd. is about 2km straight in from the park gate on
the left hand side (only road that runs east-west once into
the woods). The road is gated off to vehicle traffic but is
open to birders, with benches set up for comforttable
viewing of all migrants. Parking is available at the
Spicebush trail entrance.
