The LPBO sightings board is updated to September 8.

Highlights this past week include:

Lesser Black-backed Gull
Olive-sided Flycatcher
Connecticut Warbler
Lincoln's Sparrow

On September 10th, 91 species were observed at the Old Cut field station including a hatch-year Acadian Flycatcher, Northern Parula, Orange-crowned Warbler and 12 raptor species including Northern Goshawk and Red-shouldered Hawk.

This morning things are slow but there is a myriad of thrushes, mostly Swainson's with the first rush of Gray-cheeks.

Good birding,

LPBO is situated on       the north shore of Lake Erie, in Canada.  From Highway 401 or Highway 3, come south       on Highway 59 to the north shore of Lake Erie. BSC's National Headquarters       is situated at 115 Front St. in Port Rowan.  From Highway 59 south,       turn east on Regional Rd 42 (Front St) and drive 400 metres to our       building on the south side of the road.  LPBO's Old Cut Field Station       is on Old Cut Blvd. on Long Point, just       two streets before Highway 59 ends at Long Point Provincial Park. We are the 6th building       on the right as you head north on Old Cut Blvd. from Highway 59. There is a small sign on       the front lawn. You can park across the road in the Ministry of Natural Resources boat       launch parking lot. We're open to the public during spring and fall migration (from April       to mid June and early August to mid November, respectively). The best time to come for a       visit is in the morning, since the bird
 banding program winds up around noon. It's a good       idea to call in advance (519-586-2885).
