Westmount: I came across a small flock of warblers at the Summit park. 2 Bay-Breasteds, 1 Blackburnian, 1 Magnolia Warbler, (2 Paruline à poitrine baie, 1 Paruline à gorge orangée, 1 Paruline à tête cendrée), all males, and all in beautiful colorful plumage. In the same group was a Philadelphia Vireo, nearby a Red-Eyed Vireo (Viréo de Philadelphie, à proximité d'un Viréo aux yeux rouges), giving me a good chance to see the differences between these birds—the Philadelphia much daintier, shorter bill, besides differences in coloration: dark line through eye, yellowish breast, etc. A Least Flycatcher (I think) was hanging out in the same area. Crested flycatchers (Tyran huppé) and Red-eyed Vireos calling in several different places, probably well installed for the summer season. - Nicholas Acheson
