Point Pelee Update: May 8, 2009

May 8, 2009

Our final morning was spent checking the tip and working our way to the north end of the park. Overall not too much change from yesterday. A few new migrants were observed including a Wilson's Warbler at the tip and a male Bay-breasted Warbler in Tilden Woods.

The seasonal trail at Sanctuary hosted a number of warblers including Blue-winged, Palm, Black-throated Blue, Cape May, Nashville and a few Yellow-rumped. After departing Pelee at 10:30 a.m. we drove by Hillman's Conservation Area and had 100+ Black-bellied Plover and 1 flyby Great Egret.

Our drive home was uneventful and we arrived in Carp 8 hours later! Will be back to Pelee Sunday afternoon on my second tour with my son Ben co-leading.

Good birding,

Note from the Webmaster: I've made it back to Ottawa! Keep your eye out for photos over the next few days. Stay tuned! Thanks for your patience! ~ Frances
