Thanks to Tony Leukering, a Mountain Bluebird that had slipped under the
eBird radar (flagged as 'passerine sp.') was brought to my attention
yesterday. The report - with photo - was updated late last night to show the
correct species (https://ebird.org/gbbc/view/checklist/S43036433). It was
seen on private property (no access) on Sunday 18th February on Hwy 2 near
the junction with Macalpine Road (between Kingston and Gananoque). In her
original report no location details were given but she was happy to share
them so long as people are aware that folks will need to stay on the road,
and to be careful/respectful of the highway (busy at times).
I will be out there this morning to have a look and will update later.
Directions: The bird was seen near civic address 4157 Highway 2, which is
7km west of Gananoque or 20km east of Kingston. The closest exits off the
401 are 632 at Joyceville and 645 at Napanee.
