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.

 

Highlights:

It was a generally quiet week with little in the way of highlights. The KFN
annual fall round-up takes place this weekend - check their website
(https://kingstonfieldnaturalists.org) for details. Please note that for the
next week or so the Amherst and Wolfe Island ferries are running at
half-capacity due to mandatory 5-year dry-dock maintenance of the Wolfe
Islander III. Be prepared for delays. Here are the highlights of the last
week:

 

TUNDRA SWAN - birds seem to be now more widespread but numbers are low with
a high of just 8 noted in Kingston on 27th and 29th.

RUDDY DUCK - as many as 10 birds have been seen over the week at Marshlands
CA/Cataraqui Bay, Kingston.

RED-NECKED GREBE - Kingston's Cataraqui Bay bird continues as of 1st Nov.

RED-THROATED LOON - 1-2 birds were seen at Prince Edward Point 26th-28th.

CAROLINA WREN - a single bird was seen at Delta on 30th.

SNOW BUNTING - 40 birds were noted north of Gananoque today (1st Nov).

 

In order to minimise disturbance to wildlife and property in the recording
area, Kingston Field Naturalists has adopted the KFN Sensitive Sightings
Policy
<http://kingstonfieldnaturalists.org/birding/KFN_sensitive_sightings_policy.
pdf> . Please note that you must be a card-carrying member of Kingston Field
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.

 

Mark.
