P-P-Pelee Island #1

Hi Birders,

I arrived on the island last night and today was my first day on the island until May 20ish. There were a few things around, modest numbers of most migrants expected at this time of year. I also had some noteworthy sightings too!

Yellow-throated Warbler – a spanking male singing his heart out about 50m. east of my cottage. Got some nice pics! See my blog -

Louisiana Waterthrush – male (singing too) in the drainage ditch also near my cottage, on South Shore Road, west of Curry Dyke Road.

Some other interesting sightings included singles of Nashville Warbler, Northern Waterthrush, Green Heron and Gray Catbird

A Worm-eating Warbler was present in the netting lanes at Fish Point from April 22-23.

Birders should note that currently the ferry (both!!!!) are inoperable, and will likely be so until May 12th. Flights are running several times daily from Windsor, out of Great Lakes Navigation at a cost of $15 roundtrip.

Good Birding!
