The birding today at Point Pelee National Park was very active and while scouting for the upcoming OFO Convention we managed to see 17 species of warblers including 2 Wilson's, 40+ Blackpoll, 15+ Nashville,10+ Magnolia, and 3 Tennessee Warblers. Other species of note included 2 White-eyed Vireo, 3 Blue-headed Vireo, 3 Philadelphia Vireo, 8 Red-eyed Vireo, 12 Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, 1 Red-headed Woodpecker, and 7 Gray-cheeked Thrush. A small number of American Golden-Plover and Black-bellied Plover were in the onions fields.
Good birding, Bruce, Ben, Todd and Dave
Blackpoll Warbler was one of the most common warbler at Pelee. We observed 30+ foraging in the backyard area while we were having dinner at Paula's Fish Place Restaurant just outside Point Pelee National Park.
The American Redstart responded to pishing and squeaking well.
