the highly visible red admiral butterfly of point pelee
All morning on a guided birding hike around Point Pelee National Park.
Sunny, breezy, cold enough for heavy leather jackets. The birds gave us
a bit more of a challenge today, starting with the Wild Turkey who
gobbled derisively from the underbrush but never let us see him. New birds
added this morning include:
- Blue Jay
- Swamp Sparrow
- Wild Turkey (heard only)
- Eastern Phoebe
- Great Crested Flycatcher
- Warbling Vireo
- Blue-Headed Vireo
- Wood Duck
- Brown-Headed Cowbird
- Red-Breasted Merganser
- White-Crowned Sparrow
- Chipping Sparrow
- Field Sparrow
I also learned that a very striking butterfly that caught my eye on a couple of
occasions yesterday was the Red Admiral. We saw more Downies, including one that was vigorously expanding its nesthole. Another Brown Creeper, another Nashville Warbler too.
Before our guided hike, we took a woodland hike on our own and found any number of wildflowers, including violets, Dutchmen's breeches, and even some carnivorous Jack-in-the-Pulpit looking guys.
Tonight we're trying for the courtship display of the American Woodcock. Wish us luck!
dutchman's breeches wildflowers at point pelee, yeah, that has to be right, i couldn't make up that name
back - next
