Hello Everyone! Throughout the year I will be doing several birding trips & "Big Days" around Ontario and Simcoe County. I am hoping to fundraise one dollar per species during these events, and with your support, we will be able to fund some current and new conservation initiatives at the Wye Marsh!

Some upcoming trips I am going on will be Point Pelee (April 30th - May 10th)

Global Big Day at the Wye Marsh May 13th

Simcoe County Big Day on May 21st.

Keep tuned to the links below to keep track of my bird sightings and to stay up to date on any potentially rare sightings:

The past few days in Pelee have been VERY slow. There have been few birds in the park migrating with the winds coming from the North/West holding many of the expected migrants back. That being said, there was a mega rarity in PPNP! A Townsend's Warbler was seen throughout the day on May 1st. A 3rd record for the park and first since 1988. 

At this time I cannot upload photos (terrible signal in the park) but here is an eBird link to the little beauty that spent the day with us: Townsend's Warbler - eBird

Thanks for following along and good birding!
