September 2006 Sightings in the Windsor Area

A large Chimney Swift roost can be observed at dusk behind the Walkerville High School in Windsor (2100 Richmond St.). The best spot to watch the swifts is in the school yard behind the school. They will be migrating south in mid September so don't delay if you wish to see this spectacular show.

September is prime time to look for blooming asters, goldenrods, Spiranthes orchids and gentians in the tallgrass prairie. A list of plants that are currently in bloom can be found in the following flowering list.

Tuesday, September 26: Last night there were still a few Northern True Katydids and Greater Angle-wing Katydids singing in the tree tops. Insect song has begun to diminish with the cooler nightime temperatures.

Groundhogs are being seen daily at the centre's bird feeders. They are putting on as much fat as possible at this time of year and are enjoying extra helpings of bird seed.

Wayne King counted over 2,500 American Robins flying over Spring Garden Road on the morning of September 20.

Hawk watchers will enjoy a new web site that provides daily and seasonal totals for hawk migration at sites across North America. Here is the link to all the Ontario hawk sites.

Friday, September 8: The underwing moth page has been updated with photographs taken at Spring Garden Natural Area in August.

Erin Casasola captured a Great Spreadwing at Spring Garden on Sept 6. This is only the second record for Canada for this large southwestern damselfly.
