Ontario Birders,

 

After a busy day of shutting down the Long Point Bird Observatory Tip
Research Station for the season yesterday, Matt Slaymaker and I happened
upon a White-winged Dove happily feeding on the left over bird seed. The
bird appeared to be an adult, but it is difficult to tell this time of year,
especially for a vagrant. There is a photo embedded in my eBird checklist
available here - http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S12048032 . 

 

More information about the birds of Long Point and LPBO can be found at

and birding sites around Long Point can be found in A Birding Guide to the

checklists, and populations trends are available through NatureCounts.ca

spring/summer sightings from the region and a summary of the LPBO 2012
Birdathon which set a new Ontario Big Day record.
