November 2010 Sightings in the Windsor Area
The existing nature centre will remain open during the construction of the new building. Please follow the signs and enter the building at the back door ramp. The front entrance is not accessible.Tuesday, November 23: A female hummingbird that visited a feeder in Cottam at the end of October has been identified as Ontario's fist record of Anna's Hummingbird. Photos can be seen at Paul Pratt's Blog. Thursday, November 4: A Golden-crowned Sparrow is currently visiting the feeders at the Belle Island Nature Zoo. It was first found on November 2. Tuesday, November 2: 91 Northern Saw-whet Owls were banded last night at Holiday Beach Conservation Area, the largest total so far this fall. Monday, November 1: The first killing frost of the season finished off the flowering annuals in our garden. Our Ruby-throated Hummingbirds have left for winter but it is still possible for stragglers to make an appearance so the feeders will stay up a while longer. Saturday, October 30: Huge numbers of birds were moving throuh Point Pelee National Park for our birding trip this morning. Thousands of American Robins and large numbers of Cedar Waxwings were constantly moving overhead along with hordes of Starlings and blackbirds. Good numbers of Purple Finches, American Goldfinches, Pine Siskins and Yellow-rumped Warblers were also in flight for much of the morning. The Delaurier Trail provided us with views of nine species of sparrow, Eastern Bluebird, Tufted Titmouse and Rusty Blackbirds. A highlight for most were several Cave Swallows seen at two locations.
