MacDonald Park, Kingston. Birders using eBird are encouraged to share their

Highlights:

It has been a steady and quiet summer in the Kingston area but things are
starting to pick up a little as migration once again kicks in. Here are the
highlights of the last week:

 

WHIMBREL - two birds were seen at Martin Edwards Reserve, Amherst Island on
18th.

WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPER - a single bird was seen on False Duck Island, off
prince Edward Point, on 18th.

LEAST BITTERN - a single bird was reported from New Canal Dock, Wolfe
Island, on 18th.

BLACK VULTURE - a single bird was seen at Prince Edward Point on 22nd,
possibly a continuing bird from last year's unprecedented 'influx'.

PEREGRINE FALCON - singles were seen in downtown Kingston and near Inverary,
north of Kingston, on 18th.

LOGGERHEAD SHRIKE - five birds were seen at Napanee Limestone Plain IBA on
18th.

CAROLINA WREN - two birds were seen near Ravensview, just east of Kingston,
on 18th, with another seen near Jones Falls on 19th.

BLACKPOLL WARBLER - an early return bird was banded at Prince Edward Point
Bird Observatory on 22nd.

area, Kingston Field Naturalists has adopted the KFN Sensitive Sightings
