Common Checkered-Skippers are plentiful right now. Today, a couple were in the yard, and over at Peers Wetland, several were seen along the trail.
Eastern Tailed-Blues are plentiful as well.
Around noon today, I saw a couple of Fiery Skippers at Brander Park, Port Lambton in the flower garden. Common Painted-Ladies were numerous as well.
The last few times at Peers Wetland have revealed few warblers, but then, many have already moved through.
This afternoon, a couple of young Common Gallinules were on Otter Creek beside Peers.
Some Sandhill Cranes were at Langstaff Line and Highway 40 early this morning. There are few fields this year to attract them, so we may not see the numbers we have been used to in the past.
It is certainly fall-like, with many trees already turning colour and losing their leaves. The goldenrods and asters are out, decorating the landscape.
The OFO Convention is this weekend in the Long Point area. The area will be well-covered by birders, including myself!
