Petrie Island and Environs with Always an Adventure

April 29, 2014

Today there were only Judith and myself with Tony & Nina, so after exploring Petrie Island for a while, Tony suggested we make our way west to the Jock River to look for the Hooded Warbler that had been reported.

We got some good finds at Petrie Island, but it was quiet along the back roads to the Jock.

There were lots of birders and photographers there but no sign of the bird.  We patrolled the shore back and forth for 40 minutes, stopping to chat with friends and fellow birders.  Suddenly I spotted it and the rush was on.  Eventually everyone got good looks and photos.
