Last year on the trip, I saw 131 species (i think the group total was around 135). This year proved to be even better, with the group tallying 141 species! Of these, I personally observed 139! This included 22 species of warblers. The highlights included great views of golden-winged warblers, sedge wrens, American bittern and Brewer's blackbirds!
Here is our complete ebird checklist, don't let your finger get tired scrolling to the bottom of the list!:
Here are a few shots from our "big day".
|The pond at Macgregor Point. We had sora, common gallinule, and other water birds here!|
|A nice Golden-winged Warbler. This guy faked us out for about 15mins when we were trying to find him by calling with a perfect blue-winged warbler song, a species that hybridizes with this golden-winged warblers.|
|One of three American bittern seen at Dyer's Bay road!|
|One of two Endangered Piping Plovers seen at Sauble Beach!!|
Stay tuned, I have a great post to get ready about my trip to Beausoleil Island!
