Sunday was an OFO trip to the Toronto Islands and it was quiet there, as far as birds are concerned, though quite busy on the tourist front. Thankfully we arrived at 8am, as the line ups to get to the island in the afternoon stretched out to the street. We were led by Luke Fazio who has a great ear and kept us entertained and moving the whole morning. The birds that were there to be found, Luke heard and made sure we all had good looks at. Highlights of the Island trip were the Summer Canvasback, a land based Gadwall and a fledgling Robin.
Later in the afternoon I went to Colonel Sam, as I seem to do nearly every day of late, and enjoyed looks at a solitary Horned Grebe and a lovely close up look at an Eastern Kingbird.
So, true, no Mourning Warblers, but in fact, not only was it a good morning, it was a great day.
