Now that we are at the end of August, more bird sightings are coming in. Finally yesterday some Buff-breasted Sandpipers were spotted at a typical location. Shorebirds are in good numbers and it was about a year ago I went out in a kayak at Rondeau Bay. One can approach shorebirds quite closely! (the masthead on this blog was taken there).
It has been a good year for Western Kingbirds and one was found in the Toronto area yesterday and seen again today. I missed the Rondeau birds (just my bad luck!) in the spring. Even though I have one for the Rondeau list, it has been a long time seeing one.
The Snowy Egret was great to see yesterday. I seem to do well with that one as I have self-found three in the past and was with other birders on another one at Rondeau. It was still present today.
While at the landfill yesterday morning, we watched a biplane doing loops.
Finally, warblers are showing up in numbers. Seemed to be a bit late in coming this fall, but I was happy to see some on the weekend. Some were at Port Lambton this morning, the first other than Yellows, that I have seen at Brander park this fall.
