July 2006 Sightings

male Ruby-throated Hummingbird

line

Tuesday, July 25: Wild Turkeys have been widely reported in the Ojibway area this spring and summer while Ring-necked Pheasants continue to be present in low numbers. A Wild Turkey was reported today by the southern edge of the nature reserve by Mary Montsch.

Park visitor's often see one or two hummingbirds at the centre's feeders. In fact there are many hummingbirds that regularly visit our feeders. Banders from Holiday Beach Migration Observatory have banded nine adults this month and soon there will be fledged young to add to their numbers.

Saturday, July 8: The Windsor Butterfly Count was held today. Please visit the count page for a complete listing of the results.

A Northern Mockingbird has been present over the past week at Malden Park. Look for it along the road leading up the big hill where the road is bordered by sumacs. This bird is a great ventriloquist. In a few minutes today We heard it imitate Northern Cardinal, Red-winged Blackbird, Belted Kingfisher, Northern Flicker, American Goldfinch, Warbling Vireo, Eastern Kingbird, Baltimore Oriole, Killdeer, Gray Catbird, Starling, Willow Flycatcher and Song Sparrrow!

Wednesday, July 5: A great new book is now available for people wishing to identify insects:   Stephen A. Marshall. 2006. Insects: Their Natural History and Diversity With a Photographic Guide to Insects of Eastern North America. Firefly Books

book cover
The Dogbane Beetle photograph on the book's cover was taken at Ojibway. Look for these brilliant insects in patches of dogbane plants during July.
