The strong southerly winds of the last day and a half have resulted in  
birds moving in and out of the area.  New at Cape Hurd today are  
singing Winter Wrens, White-throated Sparrows (both phases), and a  
male Rufous-sided Towhee hanging around the feeders.  These southerly  
winds appear to have also carried off most of the very numerous Slate- 
colored Juncos, which are almost absent  at Cape Hurd today.

Cape Hurd (near Tobermory) forms the extreme north-western tip of the
Bruce Peninsula and is squarely on a major southern Ontario migration
route, resulting in strong numbers of migrants and interesting rarities.
