Friends of Point Pelee provides daily updates of sightings within Point
Pelee National Park during the Festival of Birds May 3 through May 19, 2008

It should be noted that there were reports of the Mottled Duck at Hillman's
Marsh Shorebird Habitat from this morning. Notes on directions are in
earlier posts or call the Visitor Centre at Pelee.

The Black Vulture was relocated flying northwest from the east beach north
of the Visitor Centre.
Birds in the Park are somewhat plentiful, but congregated at several sites
as has been noted over the last few days. Most of the rarer birds have
become regular and are easy to be seen.

At the Tip
A couple of birds reported flying by included Black Tern and Glaucous Gull.
Otherwise not much reported from the Tip.

Woodland Nature Trail
This continues to be the best for birding. At the bridge near post 16, the
Prothonotary, female Cerulean, and other species of warbler continue to
congregate, allowing excellent views. Parula, Black-throated Green and
Black-throated Blue, American Redstart as well as about 5 other species are
noted there.
The other good spot is the bridge near post 12, which has a good number of
species hanging about as well.
Reported from post 4 was a Summer Tanager.
Reported from the north end of the Redbud trail, a Blue-winged Warbler.

Tilden Woods
At the boardwalk both species of waterthrush were reported. As well there
were a number of warbler species including a Kentucky Warbler. At the old
roadbed display area, there was a Yellow-breasted Chat reported.

Good Birding,
