I haven’t been out too much this May but made the effort to get out early this morning. On Nichols Cove Road I found a male Brewster’s Warbler that was singing the typical Blue-winged song in the same spot that I had one last year and a Clay-coloured Sparrow and two Eastern Towhees singing from the same field. At Deer Bay Road, north of Buckhorn Lake I had a singing Yellow-throated Vireo, Tennessee Warbler, Magnolia Warbler, Black-throated Blue Warbler, Black-throated Green Warbler, Nashville Warbler, Black and White Warbler, American Redstart, Ovenbird and Scarlet Tanager among others. On Beaver Lake Road I had Black-throated Blue, Black-throated Green, Blackburnian, Pine, Chestnut-sided, Nashville, Black and White, Northern Waterthrush and Ovenbird.
Yesterday at Lakefield Sewage Lagoons there were 10 Common Goldeneye, 4 Bufflehead, 7 Gadwall, 2 Northern Shoveler, 2 American Wigeon, a ring-necked Duck, 11 Lesser Scaup, 35 Mallards and 4 Black Terns.
