Kingston Field Naturalists (KFN) maintains records in a 50km radius of
MacDonald Park, Kingston. Birders using eBird are encouraged to share their
sightings with 'Kingston FN'. Alternatively, please email or send records
directly to me - contact details below. Please note that some sightings may
require review and remain unconfirmed unless stated otherwise.
There were further signs of warbler migration this week but shorebird
habitat remains in short supply this year with correspondingly poor numbers.
Banding (and birding) picked up a little earlier in the week at Prince
Edward Point with good numbers of BAY-BREASTED and BLACKPOLL WARBLERS moving
through. Here are the highlights of the last week:
BLACK-BILLED CUCKOO - a late bird was seen at Lemoine Point CA, Kingston, on
AMERICAN GOLDEN PLOVER - 5 birds were seen at Martin Edwards Reserve,
Amherst Island, on 27th.
SOLITARY SANDPIPER - a lone bird was still present at a location near Verona
NORTHERN SAW-WHET OWL - the first bird of the season was banded at Prince
Edward Point on 26th. Check their website for details of public banding
sessions during October.
PEREGRINE FALCON - birds were noted at Prince Edward Point on 25th and near
Verona on 27th.
GREAT-CRESTED FLYCATCHER - a late bird was seen just north of Kingston on
YELLOW-THROATED VIREO - the last bird of the season (so far) was an
individual seen near Verona on 24th.
WHITE-CROWNED SPARROW - the first of the season was photographed at Lemoine
Point CA, Kingston, on 22nd.
NELSON'S SPAROW - a single bird was seen outside the area at the traditional
location of HR Frink CA (north of Belleville) on 27th.
NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH - a very late record was received from Prince Edward
Point on 27th.
In order to minimise disturbance to wildlife and property in the recording
area, Kingston Field Naturalists has adopted the KFN Sensitive Sightings

Naturalists (KFN), or be accompanied by a member, to access both the Martin
Edwards Reserve and Amherstview Sewage Lagoons.
As always, a big thank you goes to all those who have submitted sightings
directly or via eBird.
