Hello Birders

We've enjoyed another lovely day here at Point Pelee and there continues to
be good bird activity in the park.

This morning, 4 species of vireo were noted at the Tip (White-eyed,
Blue-headed, Warbling and Red-eyed).  A very early male Blackpoll Warbler
was also seen by many observers this morning.  The Brewster's Warbler found
yesterday continued to be seen again today.  Two FISH CROWS were noted
calling and flying NE over the Tip this morning.

Blue-winged Warblers were found in several locations in the park, including
the along the road between West Beach and White Pine and on the Woodland
Nature Trail.  Grey-cheeked thrushes were also noted (very early) along the
Woodland Nature Trail, as were Red-headed Woodpecker and Northern

A Northern Waterthrush was also hanging out around the boardwalk in
Tilden's Woods and two Pine siskin were noted at the East Road exhibit
along the same trail.

Cape May Warbler was a noteworthy sighting from DeLaurier this morning and
reports coming in this afternoon have suggested that birding along the west
side of the park, on the footpaths north of white Pine have been fruitful.

No reports of the Henslow's Sparrow have been received since 7 pm last

Not reports have been received today regarding the Am. Avocets sighted at
Hillman Marsh yesterday.

Looking forward to what tomorrow may bring!

Good Birding!
