Craig and I went for a couple of hours birding before lunch.
We began at Kerwin Trail. It was quiet at first, but we eventually heard an Ovenbird. We called it and it came with a couple of buddies. On the return trip to the car, we had a couple of Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers and also two Northern Flickers.
Our next stop was Berry Side Road, where we saw a Brown Thrasher, a Yellow Warbler and several Common Yellowthroats. The Osprey platform was empty.
From there went turned down Fifth Line Road, and saw a Bluebird on a wire and also a Kingbird.
We went on to
where the Osprey platform was
also empty. There were many Swamp
Sparrows calling and a few seen. Constance
We made our way home via
Road, where there were three Ospreys on the nest,
one of them a juvenile.
We stopped in at the Nepean Sailing Club to see the Purple Martins. The banding was just over, we were told; fifty-nine banded.
