Over the next 90 minutes there were more than 40 species going to and fro amongst the bushes and tree. There were Philadelphia, Blue-headed, Warblling and Red-eyed Vireo. There were warblers gallor and I was able to add 12 new species from my two mornings of birding Col. Sam. I found a couple of Lincoln's Sparrows and finally, my first Baltimore Oriole of the year, bringing my year list to 292 species. It's a shame that more of the local birders I see nearly every day in Col. Sam during migration weren't there to share in the wealth of birds.
This may be my last real migration birding in Ontario, as I am leaving tonight for 4 days in Minnesotta and 4 in New York. But it was a great way to end my short trip home. I've got some ideas of where to go within a half hour of where we are staying in Minneapolis. There should be a good chance for Cerulian, Mourning and Golden-winged Warblers. I'll check e-bird in the morning and head out early.
As always, more adventures await discovery.
