On the way up, we stopped in Venosta at the bike trail when we saw a familiar-looking car parked in the lot. Sure enough, we soon met Connie, Jane and Guy, all retirees from Statscan. The best birding was past, but we did get great looks at a Bobolink.
At the cottage, we had a visit from a couple of Evening Grosbeaks, several Purple Finches and American Goldfinches, and our first Ruby-throated Humming bird of the season.
We went into Maniwaki on business, then birded the side roads near BMR. Lots of Yellow Warblesr, a couple of Brown Thrashers, an Eastern Kingbird, some sparrows, and a few Least Flycatchers.
