Dickcissel in Bruce County – June 9, 2010

The temperature was 11 C, the winds were 30 to 50 K; it was raining and the forecast said the rain would end in the late afternoon.  The question facing the Bruce Birding Club members was to go or not to go birding that day. The decision was to shorten the day and go only after the target birds which were know to be in the area and if anything else that happened to show up, that would be a bonus.  The birds they were seeking were Dickcissel, Blue-winged Warbler, Upland Sandpiper and Clay-cloured and Grasshopper Sparrows and Willow Flycatcher, all know to be in the area.  In the end, 45 species of  birds were seen.

The Bruce Birding Club’s bimonthly trip sightings will be posted here.  If you wish to have a copy of today’s sightings and where the birds were seen, please make your request known to the email address below.  You can also be put on a mailing list to receive these twice monthly birding reports.  Also, if you wish to make some website comments, please contact  birding@owensoundfieldnaturalists.ca.
