The Prairie Warbler first found at the Currie Tract a couple of weeks ago was still showing and singing (virtually non-stop). It was in essentially the same location where it was first found. This at about 9 am today.

Walk in along the main gated trail and follow this for a while
(1km??), it will take you under the hydro wires where there is a small
wet area and stream, follow the trail part way up the hill just passed
this and take the trail to the right which takes you back over to the
hydro line.  Follow this "hydro trail" that you've just joined, it
takes you under the wires 3 times before you begin paralleling the
hydro lines on the south side (700m - 1km).  Along this stretch you
will see the sign Hugh referred to (Green rectangle with white
squiggles), stay on the main path. i.e. straight, then about 200m
beyond there will be a clearing on the north/left side, there are a
couple of small "trails" through the grass here (I first heard the
Prairie and a Blue-winged from the trail here), head north to the line
of Sumachs and cross through them, this is the aforementioned Hydro
Tower N580M  ( not  N480M ), ( a good tip that lets you know that you are in the right place ) and the white chair with ladder (deer-hunting stand??).
