  • Re: Migration Monday - April 17, 2017

    This is being posted on behalf of the author, Mark Milton. Well, I'm finally batting over .500 on my predictions, as last week saw five of my eight predicted species arrive, as well as three bonus appearances.  Casey township was the hotspot of the week, and that is where Mike Werner found the expected Rusty Blackbirds on April ...

    Hi Gert. I too had my first White-throated Sparrow on the 22nd. Not heard a Loon yet, though. Lots of stuff seemed to move in this past week, including larger numbers of the few vanguards we'ed had of some species last week. As far as I know, noone has seen a Bluebird yet, so keep a lookout for them

  • Migration Monday - April 17, 2017

    This is being posted on behalf of the author, Mark Milton. Our returning migrants continued last week to be mainly associated with open water, but there is some evidence that songbirds will soon take centre stage.  On the 11th, Serge Gendron was accompanying me to Hill's Lake to see if we could find the Double-crested Cormorant he had ...

    Unbeknownst to the avid birders in the area, a small flock of eight geese stopped in for an extended two week stay at the farm of Gary and Rita Sparling in Kenabeek in mid-March of this year. Although the precise dates were not recorded, the Sparlings tell me that they arrived during that bitterly cold spell around March 9th, 2017, and stuck ...

  • Nearly March!

    Well, folks. March is just around the corner now. And you know what happens in March, don't you? The migration will start to pick up some steam. The ducks and geese will be the first to arrive, and by the end of the month we'll have all kinds of interesting critters. The raptors will start appearing, including Rough-legged Hawks, ...

    Yes, it was at Bill's house that we found them. Nice of them to show up at your house, too. Please let us know how long they stick around the area.

  • Siskin Search Successful

    There has been a real paucity of siskins in the district this year. This sometimes abundant winter visitor has been extremely difficult to find since the beginning of 2017, and not just in Timiskaming. They seem to have vacated most of northern Ontario and nothern Quebec this winter. Pine Siskins are one of the "irruptive" finches that ...

    Hi Mike. Yes, I've setup an eBird account under the name of TimBirds Forum User, or something to that effect. I can make the posting if you give me specific date and location.
