Sightings for Tuesday May 11th

Dundee, Réserve-nationale-de-faune-du-Lac-Saint-François: Sharon and I went to see the Sandhill cranes (Grues du Canada) this morning. I took a few pictures and when checking them out at home I noticed a hatchling that we did not see when we were there. Looks like it has only hatched recently. - S. Veysey, T.

Bird Protection Quebec's "Jim Houghton Spring Warbler Walk" - Obviously the best of our 3 trips so far!

""" The Warbler Walk at Westmount's Summit Park finally lived up to its name. A small group of birders counted 23 species, 8 of which were warblers. Bird of the Day: an early Hooded Warbler (Paruline à capuchon), seen by most of us among the fallen logs on the west side.
