Today's fog at Pelee. Note how few leaves on the big trees!!! Is the leaf-out late? Or is it just a bunch of dead ash trees?

Beautiful time to be in the park. Tons of birds and way less people. Already found a female Summer Tanager this morning. My 5th "self found" SUTA this year !

Yesterday was a bit birdier! Had 24 warbler species by 10am, then nothin new. Found Prothonotary, Hooded, 2 White-eyed Vireos, Olive-sided fly, Grasshopper sparrow etc. Nothin super rare but a very enjoyable day.

We're hopeful for hawks today, but it's less that stellar right now.

  1. I'm enjoying the field posts, Brandon. I was inspired to try Pelee for the first time ever yesterday-- surprised to read that there were fewer people than normal; it felt too crowded for comfort for me... but birdy, for sure.
