Point Pelee Update: May 12, 2009

May 12, 2009

The bird migration continues to be slow but there are still a few new arrivals. The birding has been quiet at the tip with the north end of the park and Tilden Woods producing more birds. Some highlights today were Yellow-breasted Chat, Bay-breasted Warbler and Blue-winged Warbler.

An afternoon trip to Hillman Conservation Area was excellent. Hundreds of shorebirds were resting and we observed 1000+ Black-bellied Plover, 2 Whimbrel, and 3 Ruddy Turnstone.

Still waiting for a weather change maybe tomorrow!

Good birding,
Bruce & Ben
