Thanks E-bird and the OFO

Just a short post today, but one to hi-light just how much we rely on and should be thankful to our technology when it comes to birding. Thanks to a few good folks who were on yesterday's OFO Hamilton field trip, who also posted on E-bird, I had the GPS coordinates of the Nelson's Sparrows I had been seeking, without success, the last little while.

Once I parked the car in the Coot's Paradise area it didn't take long to find lots of Sparrows and in short order I got a spectacular look at the elusive, at least for me, Nelson's Sparrow.

Number 536 for the year with just a little help from the Ontario birding community.
