Hi all,

Nice to see some sun but not unexpectedly, not too many migrants except for larger species like Flicker and Blue Jay. We did see five species of warbler, just in ones and two scattered about. As we were leaving, a kettle of raptors was forming over the Shorefield parking lot which contained five Broadwings, both vultures, a Redtail and an Osprey. Rather a mixed bag...
