Hi All

I arrived at the Visitor Centre this morning, to be greeted by the call of 
a Fish Crow.  The bird was first found by Mike Nelson.  It was calling 
from one of the tall trees in the transit loop and was also seen sitting 
on the satellite tower at the rear of the Visitor Centre. 

There haven't been as many birders in the park this week, but the 
highlights from the last few days are

Whimbrel (1) and Nelson's Gull at the Tip yesterday morning - Josh 
Vandermuelen and I found them.  We also had an Acadian Flycatcher leaving 
the Tip in the morning.

Mississippi Kite (1) was reported from the Tip yesterday afternoon - no 
details have been provided.

Mourning Warbler was noted this morning and Blackpolls are widespread 
throughout the park.  Many resident warblers have taken up territory, but 
there are still lingering migrants.  The foliage is close to full leaf out 
- so seeing birds is getting much tougher, I did hear Black-throated blue, 
Northern Parula and Blackburnian yesterday in my travels.

It's the time of year to keep your ears open!

Good Birding everyone!
