Good Day Eh, Today Bob Tyler and I birded the Toronto Island from Ward’s Island to Gibralter Point and for only the second time on the Islands (for us) we both saw 4 species of Grebes including 1 Eared Grebe, 2 Horned Grebes, 3 Pied-billed Grebes and 7 Red-necked Grebes. The only other time that happened on The islands Bob and I were together that time as well.
We also found 3 Common Loons, Canvasbacks all 3 Mergansers, Ring-necked Ducks, both Scaup an Eastern Towhee and 2 Black-crowned night-Herons and a Great Blue Heron was seen by Jennie Bull. It was cool but sunny day all morning with mixed clouds in the afternoon and it’s obvious that migration has slowed with many of the expected birds missing but hopefully by mid July it will warm up and the NW winds will abate :>)). PS – Last Tuesday the 3rd ( for those that are interested ) Bob and I found an active Mourning Cloak Butterfly. Norm Murr Richmond Hill Ontario, Canada You can't see birds if you don't go out but sit and wait for others to find them. _______________________________________________ ONTBIRDS is presented by the Ontario Field Ornithologists (OFO) - the provincial birding organization.
