There were signs of some migration movement at Prince Edward Point today, 
judging from the success of the guided walks through the Point Traverse 
Woods. Many of the same warblers were present again, but also present were 
SWAINSON'S THRUSH, GOLDEN-WINGED WARBLER (found by Mike Runtz) and a rather 
unexpected RING-NECKED PHEASANT, just to name a few of the significant 
species.  A SOLITARY SANDPIPER along Babylon Road, and a MOURNING WARBLER 
near the P.E.Pt. lighthouse.

The Birding Festival continues through the Victoria Day weekend. Details at 
www.peptbo.ca  . Bird-friendly shade-grown coffee available in the 
Hospitality Tent.  Guided bird walks every morning at 8:00 a.m. beginning 
just west of the Point Traverse corner.

DIRECTIONS: On Main Street, at the far east end of Picton, turn down the big 
hill (Bridge Street) and turn immediately right at the bottom of the hill 
onto Union Street (across from harbour). Follow Union Street out of Picton 
(becomes County Road 8) for 2.5 km, and at the junction in the highway, 
follow County Road 17. Take County Road 17 for 6.5 km and look for the Black 
River Cheese sign, and turn left onto County Road 16 and follow for 1 km to 
the Stop sign at County Road 13. Follow County Road 13 past Black River 
Cheese for 23.6 km to the Prince Edward Point National Wildlife Area.  Total 
Driving Distance from Picton:  33.6 km
