April 2011

The old nature centre is gone and we are moving into the new facility. The Live Roof system was installed April 6. Please excuse the inconvenience during construction. Visit the construction page for recent site photos.

Thursday, April 17: Wednesday morning's birding program at Point Pelee was memorable for all the colour. We saw brightly plumaged species such as Indigo Bunting, Scarlet Tanager, Orchard Oriole, Baltimore Oriole, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Red-headed Woodpecker, Wood Thrush, Yellow-throated Vireo, Eastern Meadowlark, Bobolink and seven species of warbler, just in the tip area of the park.

This is a great time of year to enjoy feeding birds. Showy species such as American Goldfinch, Rose-breasted Grosbeak and Purple Finch will soon be joined by Baltimore Oriole and Ruby-throated Hummingbird.

Tuesday, April 19: Hermit Thrushes have arrived in good numbers. Five were feeding in one sumac bush today at Spring Garden Natural Area.

On Sunday, April 17, our Birding for Beginners group saw five Eastern Bluebirds, four Eastern Towhees, Northern Mockingbird, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, Bald Eagle and 25 Cedar Waxwings.

Saturday, April 9: A total of 365 Mute Swans were seen this morning along the Detroit River waterfront in Lasalle. A Bald Eagle nest is easily visible from the foot of Laurier Street and a female Long-tailed Duck was present at the foot of Wahneta Street.

Friday, April 8: The cool weather has slowed bird migration but there has been a trickle of returning migrants this week including both species of kinglets, Eastern Towhee, Winter Wren, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Eastern Phoebe, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, Fox Sparrow and Field Sparrow. Chorus Frogs are in full song.
