Ovenbird May 10. They're usually very secretive, but zhe was confused for a moment after being forced to ground by some rain.

Very nice. Quite an assortment of warblers.

I lived in Michigan 40+ years ago and Point Pelee was one of the best places for catching the smelt run. Are there any smelt there now? I heard they are gone since the zebra mussels arrived.

Many thanks.

It's my 5th year visiting for spring migration and I've not heard of that at all. I might not have paid enough attention -- the last three years, I've skipped the shorebirds and marshland to indulge in the woodland birds, which are hard to see once the leaves and mosquitoes are out.

Cheers,
Debbie

What a wonderful group of migrators Debbie, and I exude high levels of envy in your direction for the opportunity to encounter these. :-)
All of your captures are very nice; the best and my personal favorite is the Ovenbird. Nicely done!

Many thanks Mel, Carol, Bryce, Sandy, Steve, Al, and Lester for your kind comments. These warblers are a real treat from nature. I only wish the season is a little longer. Cheers, Debbie

Excellent series. I've been to Point Pelee a few times. Also the place where you will find the widest variety of snakes in Canada. Great place for a herp enthusiast.
