The bird was just seen again. Same address as before.

We just saw and heard the Townsend's Warbler singing in the trees closest
to the road in front of cottage 17372 Lakeshore Rd in Rondeau Provincial
Park. It has already quieted down again but with the hot sunny weather most
of the songbirds are much quieter than a couple hours ago. It will likely
sing a lot again in the late afternoon.
