The migrants are finally showing up in numbers. Reports for Rondeau and Point Pelee and Long Point reveal the expected birds. The Yellow-throated Warbler was still at Rondeau this morning.
Not much up this way yet, but Cedar Waxwings and Pine Siskins showed up today. The only thing of note at Port Lambton was the waxwings feeding on exotic berries that no bird touches in the fall. I guess by this time of year they lose their tartness and the waxwings can tolerate them. (Note: photos uploaded to the blog always go fuzzy!).
Here at home, Pine Siskins showed up at the feeder. These are first since early November here.
This White-throated Sparrow has been in the yard since January 29.
As usual for this time of year, it is difficult to go to work all day and read about the birds seen at various locations! Finally finished off a winter project today.
