September 2005 Sightings in the Windsor Area

We have updated the Massasauga Rattlesnake Recovery web site. Check out the new interactive Quiz.

Saturday, September 17: "Better warblers than May" was one of the comments heard on Saturday's field trip to Point Pelee. The tip area swarmed with flocks of warblers which gave us many chances to observe birds at close range. Highlights included 20 species of warbler for the morning, four Pine Warblers in one small cedar and seeing an adult Sharp-shinned Hawk capture a warbler. Monarch Butterfly numbers have been very good this fall and there were several hundred seen in the tress near the tip and flying over the lake.

A "brief" stop at the onion fields outside the park lead to the discovery of two Swainson's Hawks! This species is very rare in Ontario and a quick call to the visitor centre started the rush of birders to see these great birds. We had excellent views of them on the ground as they chased down grasshoppers along a farm lane.
