Sightings for Thursday May 8

Montréal: l'île de la Visitation Nature  Parrk . Again this morning another major Canada Geese (Bernache du Canada) migration-movement flying over the park (2000+). Highlight of the morning was the discovery of a Prairie Warbler (Paruline des prés) (adult male) at 8h05 (trail next to Rue Brousseau). All details (plumage) and behaviour (tail bobbing) as well as it's distinctive call which was what got my attention, were well observed for at least 3 minutes, until it flew off. Other warblers were also seen, like Yellow-rumped Warbler, (Paruline à croupion jaune)(9), Ovenbird (Paruline couronnée) (1),  Nashville warbler (Paruline à joues grises) Blue-headed Vireo and Warbling Vireo (Viréo à tête bleue et Viréo mélodieux) - Joel Coutu
