Another very busy morning here at Rondeau, with large
numbers of warblers moving through the park.
The South Point area again seemed to be the best area with
big numbers of Cape May, N. Parula, Tennessee, and
Yellow-rumped Warblers still moving through. There were
also 4 Mourning Warblers and 3 Orange-crowned seen along
Godlen-winged Warblers were reported from both South Point
and the Pony Barns. Also at the Pony Barns were good
numbers of mixed warblers and 2 Olive-sided Flycatchers.
Prothonotary Warblers have been seen on Tulip Tree, Bennett
rd. and Spicebush trail.
Chuck-wlls-widow was again heard calling from the visitor
center parking lot last night, starting calling at 8:52pm
and was still singing at 9:20.
Yesterday afternoon there was sub-species of interest and
Oregon Junco was feeding at a feeder on Lakeshore Rd. Also
seen late yesterday was a Common Nighthawk flying over the
fields just north of the park.
Fron hi-way 401 (approx 50 minutes west of London) take exit
101 and head south. Follow the signs into the park. Once
in the park to reach the visitor center continue following
Rondeau Rd. back 7km.
