Cooler temperatures may have slowed some of the early bird activity but
good sightings are coming in.

There is debate about the Nightjar at the tip.  Birders are choosing
between CHUCK-WILL'S-WIDOW  and  WHIP-POOR-WILL.  The bird is at the TIP
west of the boardwalk across from the 42nd parallel trail.  Other birds
reported from the Tip  are a singing Mourning Warbler and a Hooded Warbler.

Blue-winged, Black-throated Blue, and Chestnut-sided were among the
Warblers seen on Woodland Nature Trail.

Clay-coloured Sparrow is in the West Beach parking area still.

Prothonotary Warbler is being seen around the DeLaurier homestead site.

The Common Nighthawk is, at the same roost as yesterday, just north of the
entrance to the Marsh Boardwalk parking lot..

There have been no reports, as yet,  from the North of the Park from
outside the Park.

Good Birding
