October 2004 Sightings in the Windsor Area

Pine Siskin (left) and House Finch at feeder

line

Visit the Nature Centre's Upcoming Events page and ECFNC Activities page for upcoming programs.

Wednesday, October 6: Northern finches and nuthatches move south when cone crops are poor. Purple Finch, Pine Siskin and Red-breasted Nuthatch are being widely reported in Windsor and the county which likely means few cones are present on spruce trees in central and northern Ontario.

Monday, October 25: Late migrants have been widely reported in Windsor due to the continued mild weather. Fred Urie found American Redstart and Orange-crowned Warbler Oct 22 at Memorial Park while Oakwood Bush had Yellow-throated Vireo, Blackpoll Warbler (3), Orange-crowned Warbler(4) and Grey-cheeked Thrush the same day. Ojibway had American Redstart, Orange-crowned Warbler and Black-throated Green Warbler on October 25.

Sunday, October 31: Rain and high winds over the past few days have resulted in heavy leaf drop in the region. Most trees are now bare of leaves except for a few oaks and non-native trees such as mulberries and willows. No frost has been recored so far this fall.
