This morning for approximately 45 minutes I felt like I was back at Fish Point on Pelee Island. Before work I birded Columbia Lake in Waterloo and had an excellent diversity of songbirds. I came across a great mixed flock of 15 warbler species including golden-winged, canada, northern parula, bay-breasted, Tennessee, blackburnian among others! Overall a great start to the morning, and a reminder to myself that you don't need to be down at the best birding spots to see some good birds (although that helps, see Brandon's blog here: http://www.blog.peregrineprints.com/). Unfortunately no pictures this time, the warblers were flitting around too much.
Here is the ebird checklist:
The golden-winged warbler was my 200th species of the year! I'm shooting for 250 though, so I had better pick up the pace, since each bird gets progressively harder to find as you knock off all the easy ones.
