Rondeau Report: May 10, 2009

After an early start from Carp at 4:45 a.m., we decided to check Rondeau Provincial Park en route to Pelee. It paid off with 19 species of warblers including Prothonotary, Hooded, Cerulean and Blue-winged Warbler. There was lots of activity along Harrison Trail with numerous Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Red-bellied Woodpecker, Wilson's Warbler and Carolina Wren. After 2 hours of birding we headed for our hotel in Leamington. Tomorrow morning we plan on being on the 6 a.m. tram to the tip in Pelee.

A rare visitor, a male Hooded Warbler was very co-operative and we had great views.

Good birding,
Bruce and Ben
