A birding visit to Long Point

The weather forecast was threatening thunderstorms today but we lucked out.  We had occasional showers while driving and a little fog off and on at Long Point Provincial Park.

We saw dozens of Yellow Warblers

Many Tree Swallows - this one was focused on nest building.

A gazillion Red-winged Blackbirds

A rather striking Eastern Kingbird

And a distant, zoomed in American Coot.

It was a great day!


  1. Beautiful photos. I love the sheen on the swallow's back.

  2. I don't know a lot of your birds but I do know and love little swallows. Not that one exactly, this one looks much more colourful than the ones I see.

  3. Our tree swallows are taking nesting material into the nest boxes at the cabin. Looks like three out of five might get occupied this year. Red-winged blackbirds are some of my favourites. We don't get them around here very often. I love their calls. - Margy

  4. Beautiful photos of the birds-- you always capture them so wonderfully. The fog photo is so serene--
