We started the morning at Petrie Island. It was beautiful sunshine with a crisp spring wind coming from north-west.
Song Sparrows were singing everywhere and Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers were drumming from several places.
The short trail around the island revealed Yellow-rumped Warbler, Ruby-crowned Kinglet and a Winter Wren.
After our obligatory stop at Timmy’s we went driving around, and on our journey we saw Greater Yellowlegs, Sandhill Crane, Bald Eagle, Barn & Tree Swallow, several sparrows and other songbirds.All in all we ended up with 52 species on this glorious day.
