The Return of Summer!

We are sweltering under unseasonal temperatures these days! It is unbelievably hot here on the Bruce Peninsula. The last 2 mornings, we were greeted at dawn by an extremely strong south wind, that completely prevented us of opening our nets. Only observations and census were thus done, to reveal very little bird activity. There were a few interesting sightings, nonetheless, notably of Nashville Warblers and Red-eyed Vireos.

In the afternoon of October 7, a young Red-headed Woodpecker was observed catching bugs on the wing at the Pine Barrens. And yesterday afternoon, it was a Black-billed Cuckoo that flew in front of the station.
