Cerulean, Yellow-throated Warblers at Ojibway!
A local birder and bug enthusiast - Brad Hamel was birding at Ojibway this morning and found a Cerulean and Yellow throated Warbler. There seemed to be a huge bug breakout because the area was crawling with birds. List and Photo Dump below. Congrats to Brad for a great find and posting to WEPBIRDS and Ontbirds!
Karen H. and Brad hung out and helped me get on the target birds while we picked out migrant after migrant passing through this bug breakout. All the birds below (except raptors) were in one of three contiguous trees. Amazing!
