Another highlight was the one American Golden Plover among all the Black-bellied Plovers on the very tip of Point Pelee, the most Southern point in Ontario. It was in with this gathering of shorebirds as well as Willets and the Greater Backed Black Gull.
Everyone comes to Point Pelee for the warblers and we were not disappointed. We had seen 7 warbler species before heading to Pelee and then saw another 12 at Pelee and another 3 at Rondeau, 1 in Burlington and another 3 at Long Point giving us 26 of the 43 species in Ontario. Not easy to get pics of them.

Migration is winding down and with 175 species thus far it will start to get harder to add to the numbers. We will need to start concentrating on specific habitat and nesting grounds now. Next milestone will be bird 200!
