The Scissor-tailed Flycatcher was present between 1-2PM this afternoon at the location near the Luther Marsh. The bird was mostly observed on the power lines although it was shifting locations frequently.
Luther Marsh/Lake is located north of Rd 109 approx. half way between
Arthur and Orangeville. From Rd 109 go north on Sideroad 24-25. Turn
left (west) onto Concession 8-9. Turn right (north) where this
Concession ends at Sideroad 21-22 and turn left (west) on Concession
Rd. 11, which is past the Luther Marsh Conservation Area entrance. The
flycatcher was on the wires just past the houses, where there is a big
sign that says "Monticello" in a field on the south side of the road.
Great Egrets, Great Blue Herons, Mute Swans, Eastern Kingbirds, Barn & Tree Swallows, Yellow Warbler and a few others can also be seen here.
