I also had some field work down in the Essex area on Monday and was able to find the Dickcissel at Camper's Cove. I snapped a record shot of this beauty below.
On Thursday and Friday I had the privilege of carrying out some butterfly surveys at work for an Endangered butterfly species, the Mottled Duskywing. Currently there are thought to be only 9 sites in Ontario where this species is known from. I snapped a few pictures of this beautiful, tiny butterfly below.

We camped at Presquile Provincial Park on Thursday night and walked the Owen Point Trail, which bright back lots of memories from my childhood when my Dad and I used to visit the park fairly often.
We saw both Semi-palmated Plover and the recently nesting Piping Plovers, another endangered species that has not nested in this park in many years!
