The kinglets are here, a little late. Most were golden-crowned. The earliest we’ve ever seen them in Our Woods is March 31. All photos are from Laurelcrest Park except the crocuses – they’re from our front garden.
Robins appeared on Feb. 18th! this year (earliest ever!) in Our Woods, and we had a good day on April 23 when we saw a peewee, looking for it after hearing its “pee-a-wee call.” Also seen, a Baltimore Oriole in flight, the earliest GTA sighting recorded on ebird.ca being in Hamilton that same day. Then there was the usual stuff: our 1st brown creeper, ruby and golden crowned kinglets, and we heard the song sparrow.
My Birds and Stuff page has been updated for 2015-2016 with some photos. The most exciting news is a first ever sighting of the Night Heron for my super spotter and me. It has been here for about 4 days. I snapped it today. For more details, please visit the page.
