Seasonal Early April Migrants

Just a short posting tonight. Windsor and region have experienced a string of great weather over the last few days and some migrants have been noted in my own walks at Ojibway Park in Windsor.

Seen in the last few days:

Male breeding plumaged Yellow Rumped Warbler
Orange Golden-crowned and Ruby Crowned Kinglets
Fox Sparrows
White Throated Sparrows
Hermit Thrushes
Belted Kingfisher
Brown Creeper
Eastern Phobe

I have been looking for Yellow Bellied Sapsuckers this week with no luck. I saw one two weeks ago though at Pelee. Another bird I have been trying to catch up with is the Thayers Gull near the Essex Landfill. It would be my 399th life bird!

I had four Lep Species over the last two days:
Cabbage White (FOY)
Red Admiral
Eastern Comma
Mourning Cloak

I had a nice look at a Blandings Turtle at Ojibway

I'm off to see Canadian Comedian Ron James at the Casino in Windsor Tonight. Good birding this weekend!

Good Birding!

  1. I am sure you mean Golden-crowned Kinglet! Orange-crowned Warbler would be nice at this date though.
    Ron James is great!
