Anyways, today I got out for a bit with Rick and ended up walking with Dan Salisbury and John Black. It was pretty quiet, but we did see several interesting birds including first of the year (for me) Black-billed Cuckoo and Swainson's Thrush. We unsuccessfully searched for 2 Worm-eating Warblers, plus a possible Hermit Warbler which was reported but never seen again.
|Swainson's Thrush - Point Pelee NP|
|Question Mark - Northwest Beach, Point Pelee NP|
|Little Yellow - Northwest Beach, Point Pelee NP|
|Variegated Fritillary - Northwest Beach, Point Pelee NP|
|Common Checkered-skipper - Northwest Beach, Point Pelee NP|
|Dainty Sulphur - West Beach, Point Pelee NP|
|melanistic Eastern Gartersnake - West Beach, Point Pelee NP|
In addition, I really need to start picking up more rarities. I was hoping to have 10-15 code 4+ species during the spring migration of late April to late May. So far I have 5: Scissor-tailed Flycatcher, Bell's Vireo, Western Tanager, Western Grebe, and Chuck-will's Widow. Hopefully migration continues to pick up!
