Mary and I just returned from a week long visit to Quebec and Ontario and boy were the woods hopping with birds up there! Most of the time was spent around a friend's cabin in Chelsea outside Gatineau, QC. Magnolia Warbler, Chestnut-sided Warbler, Black-throated Green Warbler, Blackburnian Warbler, Nashville Warbler, American Redstart, Northern Parula and Black-and-White Warbler were everywhere. Gatineau Provincial Park next door added Yellow-rumped Warbler, Wilson's Warbler, Common Yellowthroat, Cape May Warbler, and Palm Warbler to the list. Towards the end of the week Blackpoll Warblers started increasing in numbers and a fall-out during a heavy rain storm brought a rather late Canada Warbler foraging low in the trees outside the cabin. A two-day visit to our old turfs around the Kingston area in Ontario added Tennessee Warbler and Ovenbird.
Can't wait for them to pass through Maryland on their way south! PS. as always pictures can be enlarged by clicking on the thumbnails:o)
