I found and photographed one each of these species between 1:30 & 3:00 pm
this afternoon. They were at the west of the small creek between the water
treatment plant open cistern and the Jehovahs Witness parking lot (this is
the same sheltered location were several species of warbler and
Ruby-crowned Kinglets attempted over the last winter last). The Northern
Parula was confined to the low shrubs and ground cover and occasionally
adjacent trees and present for at least an hour vs the Orange-crowned
Warbler that was in the same location but was seen over period only several
minutes. On other birder from Burlington also photographed the Parula.
There were at least 30 Yellow-rumped Warblers and lots of Ruby-crowned
Kinglets and the woods were swarming robins. Photos of both species will
be added to "Ontario Bird" photos and my Facebook page.
Directions: located north of Lakeshore Boulevard and east of 3rd Line.
Parking is suggested on Sedgwick Crescent or the small parking lot at the
east of Confederation Park and between Lakeshore Boulevard and lake.
