I failed to relocate the Acadian Flycatcher this morning.
I was in the area described by Karl Konze around 9:30 to 10:15am so it may be quiet at that time of the morning.
Should you choose to try for the bird, please heed Karl's request not to disturb or harass the bird.
***PLEASE DO NOT DISTURB OR HARASS THIS ENDANGERED SPECIES. While it
is likely that it will not end up breeding successfully, do not help
ensure that this becomes a reality. Behave responsibly. Please give it
ample space, keep quiet and move about slowly. Do not entice it out by
broadcasting its song. To see ABA's Code of Ethics, check out the

Here are the directions from Karl's earlier posting:
Newtonbrook Creek is located in the Bayview Village area of Toronto,
north of Sheppard Avenue E. and between Leslie St. and Bayview Avenue.
The creek drains SE into the east branch of the Don River. From
Sheppard Avenue, drive north along Burbank Dr. to Forest Grove Dr. You
will probably need to park somewhere in this vicinity. From where
Forest Grove Dr. crosses the valley (just east of Burbank Dr.) walk SE
along the public path for approximately 740 m. The bird was singing
across the creek to the right. For those with GPS units, the
coordinates are: 43.77881421 latitude and -79.3729096 longitude
(decimal degrees). UTM coordinates in NAD83 are: 630935 E, 4848593 N.
Of course there are other ways of accessing this location from within
the park system. For those coming along the path from the SE
direction, the location is about 200 m past the bridge that crosses
the east branch of the Don River.
