Point Pelee Update: May 11, 2009

~ Congratulations, Bruce, on post #100!! ~

May 11, 2009

We managed to make the 6:00 a.m. tram to the tip at Pelee, a lot more birders in the park early! Overall, it was rather quiet with only a few new birds.

We decided to head to the north end of the park around Sanctuary and Blue Heron seasonal trails. A lot more activity, numerous migrants warblers including Blackburnian, Tennessee, Wilson's, Cape May, Northern Parula and still good numbers of Palm, Nashville, and Yellow-rumped Warblers, the earlier migrants.

The highlight of the day was a Mississippi Kite over Sanctuary, which was seen a few times during the day. The weather forecast doesn't appear to show much change in the weather. Still hoping a warm night with light rain!

Good birding,
Bruce and Ben

Note: Photos will be posted later today, I expect. Sorry for the delay. ~ Frances
