August 30, 2012 Thick-billed Kingbird still present!

The Thick-billed Kingbird is still present today at Presqu'ile Provincial Park. After going to roost in the same group of trees it reappeared on schedule this morning to the delight of many birders. The kingbird appears to be agian staying the the same general area along Bayshore Drive around #44. Please respect the private property along the road.
Directions: (Courtesy Doug McRae) Because Bayshore Road is narrow with few good parking spots, please  access it from Presqu'ile Provincial Park at the Calf Pasture day use  area. Take the park road (instead of Bayshore) and follow it; when it  becomes a one way loop, follow it around past the lighthouse and in  about 3 km, go right on Atkins Lane to the Calf Pasture Day Use  parking area. When you go through the underpass, the bird is roughly  100m E of this point or 150m from the parking lot. You can pick up a  park newspaper at the gate which has a map.

It has been very successful flycatching wasps. Below are a couple more flight shots.
