Bird Protection Quebec "Field Trip"

Spontaneous Spring Field Trip
Saturday, June 2
8:00 AM - Half-day outing

Our spontaneous spring field trip this coming Saturday will be a repeat of a "Summer Series of Birding" trip back on July 24, 2010. That trip produced 66 species, the highest number we have ever had on a summer outing. The participants of that trip all agreed that we should repeat this trip, but earlier, in the peak spring birding season, so that's what we will do on Saturday.

The trip covers sections of St-Lazare (including the very productive Fief Road), Ste-Marthe & Ste-Justine de Newton, then heads across the Quebec/Ontario border. We then head north ending up at Pointe Fortune, at the Carillon Dam. This will be a half-day trip (maybe a little more if the birds cooperate), mostly driving, but with several stops along the route. The park at Pointe Fortune is a good location to have a picnic lunch at the end of the trip should any of you wish to bring lunch along.

MEETING PLACE: Hudson Inn parking lot at Exit 17 off of Highway 40.

DRIVING INSTRUCTIONS TO MEETING SPOT: Take the Trans-Canada Highway 40 (direction Ottawa) to Exit 17 - Highway 201 Montee Lavigne / Hudson. Meet in the parking area outside the Hudson Inn complex. Carpooling on a trip such as this is a suggestion. Cars can easily be left in the parking lot at the meeting spot.

ITINERARY: From the Hudson Inn, we will drive south on Highway 201 into St-Lazare checking out Fief Road & Montée Ste-Angelique, looking for various species of field and grassland birds, and songbirds including warblers, etc. We then head west towards the Quebec/Ontario border along ch. Ste-Marie, into Ontario to Lemieux Road & La Grande Montee Road. Here we'll be again be looking for grassland birds, including Upland Sandpipers, Bobolinks, Meadowlarks, Horned Larks, etc. all seen here in the past.

We will continue north on La Grande Montee to Pointe Fortune and visit the Carillon Dam where various gulls, shorebirds and waterfowl are generally seen.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 450-462-1459. You may reach me by cellphone at 514-637-2141 on Saturday morning.

Bird Protection Quebec "Field Trip Report"

Summerstown Forest (aka Kentucky Woods), Glengarry County, Ontario
Monday, May 21
Participants: 6

Temperature: 22 degrees at 8 a.m.; 29 degrees at 12 noon: sunny with a light breeze at times


Runner-up: Scarlet Tanager

It is not often that a BPQ trip produces a lifer for most of the participants but that is what happened today when we heard two Yellow-throated Vireos along the edge of the swamp and finally everyone got to see one of the birds very well. This was a lifer sighting for 4 of the group (one of whom had had a 'heard-only' encounter before) and was a Canada lifer for another participant. I found all this very exciting as the forest is in a square that I had worked on intensively for the Ontario atlas (2001-2005) and in twenty-five years of birding in this forest I had never encountered the species before. I checked in the atlas and found that during the atlas period only two records were found in the Cornwall region (one a possible breeding evidence by former BPQ president Jeff Harrison in the square immediately adjacent to this one). Fortunately, one of the two birds was singing incessantly in true vireo style and so we were all able to see it well although it did take considerable patience with the abundant foliage.

Another highlight was provided by a pair of Scarlet Tanagers unexpectedly gathering nesting material from coniferous trees. Seeing tanagers at just above eye level is special.

Otherwise it was mostly a festival of song particularly from the flycatchers, vireos and Ovenbirds. As usual more birds were visible once we reached the swamp and turned right towards the gravel pit. A Wilson's Snipe was seen calling from a perch at the top of a snag. A distant raptor, the only one of the walk, remained unidentified.

Thanks to everyone who came out for what was a special morning of birding. - Martin Bowman

Hudson: A Little Blue Heron (Aigrette bleue) in breeding plumage was present at 7:30 this morning in the pond along the railway line just west of Finnegan's Market. The bird appeared to be catching small catfish with ease as the water levels are very low. Surprisingly, as there seems to be an abundance of food, it was the only heron present at the time.

Sightings for Sunday May 20

Beaconsfield: Late this afternoon there was a flock of about 500 White-winged Scoters (500 Macreuses brunes) on Lac Saint-Louis off St. James Park. They were actively feeding on what appeared to be insects emerging from the water. - Peter Tarassoff

Sightings for Saturday May 19

A brief visit along the banks of Verdun, in front of the Douglas Hospital. Upon my arrival (7:15pm) a group of about 150 Brant geese passed over my head, at low height. Their calls attracted my attention. Minutes later, a goup of ducks which were previously in tight raft on the river takes off and passes in front of me: There are 23 superb White-winged Scoters in breeding plumage, wearing the white spot in the shape of a tear drop and very obvious white mark on the wing. Both groups headed southwest. Also: Purple martins, Common terns, etc..

Une courte visite le long de berges de Verdun, en face de l'hôpital Douglas. À mon arrivée (19h15) un groupe d'environ 150 Bernaches cravants est passé au-dessus de ma tête, à faible hauteur. Leurs cris ont attiré mon attention. Quelques minutes plus tard, un goupe de canards qui se tenait jusque là en radeau serré sur le fleuve s'envole et passe devant moi: ce sont 23 superbes Macreuses brunes en plumage nuptial, arborant la tache blanche en forme de gouttelettes à l'oeil et la très évidente marque blanche sur l'aile. Les deux groupes ont pris la direction sud-ouest. En plus: Hirondelles noires, Sternes pierregarin, etc. - Diane Demers
Upland Sandpipers (maubèches des champs) have returned to the Grande Montee on the Quebec-Ontario border, to see the birds take the last exit off Highway 40 in Quebec (J1), go south for about 2km and then take the right (Domaine Rd) and park, the birds display over the surrounding fields and land on the utility poles, early mornings are best but they were up in the air at 14:00 yesterday.

Mourning Warblers (Paruline triste) are showing very well on L'escapade at Rigaud. From route 201 north of St-Clet take St-Henry for about 5km, after passing Sucarie St-Henry a power line cut appears and has parking on the right, park here, go through the gate to walk north (uphill) and a pair are around the small stone bluff.

I checked out Alfred Sewage lagoons in Ontario after the completion of the work in the east cell. There is virtually no shorebird habitat at the moment but the west cell still holds plenty of interesting species and I saw one male Wilson's Phalarope (Phalarope de Wilson) so they are likely back for season.

The Field Sparrow (Bruant des champs) I reported at St-Lazare sand pits was still singing away this morning, as was at least one Whip-poor-will. - Mark Dennis - A few recent photos are on my BLOG

Jim Houghton Spring Warbler Walk "Report"

As one of the participants said, "If it's raining, it must be Tuesday". And it was, but not too aggressively and 14 participants had a good early-morning walk in the Westmount Summit Woods. The trilliums are just past their prime, but still a lovely white blanket, all the dogs were on leashes, and we noted with pleasure that the tree planted in Jim Houghton's honour and sponsored by BPQ is in very good health, blooming prettily. The rain let up enough to let us see or at least hear 24 species (single individuals, unless otherwise noted):

Great Blue Heron/Grand Héron, flying over
Eastern Screech-Owl/Petit-duc maculé
Chimney Swift/Martinet ramoneur (5)
Downy Woodpecker/Pic mineur
Northern Flicker/Pic flamboyant
Great Crested Flycatcher/Tyran huppé

Sightings for Wednesday May 16

St-Lazare: A few shorebirds are starting to appear at St-Lazare sand pits. Today 3 Dunlin (3 Bécasseau variable) joined the small flock of Least Sandpipers (Bécasseaux minuscules) along with single Semipalmated Sandpiper and Plover, Killdeer and both yellowlegs (Bécasseau semipalmé et le pluvier, pluvier kildir et les deux chevaliers). Il y avait aussi une Grande Aigrette. There was also a Great Egret (Grande Aigrettet) here making it 123 species for the site so far this year.

For those interested there has been a singing Field Sparrow (Bruant des champs) present for a few days, quite unusual for the site. To see it park at the end of Lotbiniere by the no parking sign on the steel fence. Go through where it says no unauthorised access and the bird is in the willows by the yellow barrier, the whip-poor-wills and Vesper Sparrows (engoulevent bois-pourri et Bruant vespéral) are in the same area. - Mark Dennis
Île-Bizard: This morning, Jacques Lacroix and I birded the Parc-Nature at Île-Bizard this morning. The weather was great as were the birds. We were fortunate to have a Least Bittern (Petit Blongios) pop out of the reeds giving us quick but good views. Also, there were 7+ Virginia Rails, several of them easily seen, 7 Green Herons, 4 Great Blue Herons (7 hérons verts, 4 Grands Hérons) as well as many Swamp Sparrows and Marsh Wrens (Bruant des marais et troglodyte des marais) some of which were nest building.

We also watched a Merlin (faucon émerillon) rocket across the 2nd marsh area in pursuit--unsuccessfully--in pursuit of a Tree Swallow (hirondelle bicolore). Other raptors included a Cooper's Hawk, a Red-shouldered Hawk and a Turkey Vulture (Épervier de Cooper, un Buse à épaulettes et un Urubu à tête rouge) plus the two Barred Owls (Chouettes rayée) described below.

We had only 6 warbler species including Northern Waterthrush, Tennessee and Northern Parula. 6 espèces de parulines dont la Paruline des ruisseaux, le Tennessee et Paruline à collier

The highlight, however, might have been hearing two Barred Owls, an adult calling and a juvenile doing its begging call. We were then able to watch the adult feeding the juvenile as well as show several other people in the area the owls. - Charlie Nims

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

Sightings for Monday May 14

Montréal: At least 3 Common Nighthawks (Engoulevent d'Amérique) were present in the area just east of Avenue du Parc (near Rue St Urbain) this evening (around 8pm). - Vivek Govind Kumar
Westmount: Due to a bit of serendipity, a somewhat slow morning turned into a very nice day. As Sheila McCarthy and I were finishing up our walk at Summit Woods, we found a roosting Eastern Screech-Owl (Petit-duc maculé) (gray morph, most likely the one that was around last year as in same location) and I went to get a photographer\birder with whom we had been talking in order for him to see the bird. In turn, he told us about the 4-5 male Indigo Buntings (passerin indigo) hanging around the hillside along the closed road. He took us there then left. As we were sitting on a park bench, enjoying the bunting show, I noticed movement in a bushy area including a flowering apple tree below the ridge of the hillside. When I got on the bird, it was a male Golden-winged Warbler (Paruline à ailes dorées). Off and on for 4-5 minutes, I was able to get good views of the bird and able to verify (although did not hear it sing) that it was a pure, non-hybrid GWWA. Once we lost the bird, kept looking for another ~10 minutes without being able to relocate the bird.

Montréal: At the Mount Royal Cemetery, we had a few more warbler species including 4+ Cape May warblers (paruline tigrée) of which at least 2 were females. Most of the activity seemed to be in the flowering trees.- Charlie Nims

Bird Protectection Quebec "Field Trip Report" May 12

Report on BPQ birding trip: Bioblitz at Parc Angrignon

Fourteen people plus the two trip leaders, Nick Acheson and Chris Cloutier, took part in the bird census at Parc Angrignon between 7:30 am and noon on Saturday, May 12. Weather was sunny and cool to mild. We found a total of 43 species. We had a good look at a single Pied-billed Grebe on the long lake, as well as pairs of Canada Geese, Mallards, and American Wigeons. We also saw a perched Sharp-shinned Hawk and a soaring Cooper's Hawk and a Turkey Vulture, as well as two flying Great Blue Herons. Baltimore orioles were singing, and we saw a female in a partly-finished nest. Warbling Vireos and Yellow warblers were abundant and singing. We were a bit surprised to see so few other warblers of only six species, and no thruses except American Robins. Red-winged Blackbirds were abundant and vocal and could be approached closely. The complete list of birds seen (or heard) follows.

Jim Houghton Spring Warbler Walk

Tuesday May 15
Time: 7:00 am - 9:00 am
Summit Woods Lookout, Westmount; Belvédère sur Summit Circle à Westmount

Meet at Summit Woods Lookout on Summit Circle in Westmount.

If the birds are plentiful, we will stay until 9, not later. If there aren't many birds most people will have left by 8:30. We usually do the list about 8:30 and ask anyone who is staying later to call in additional sightings.

To reach Summit Circle, head north on Côte-des-Neiges. Turn left on to The Boulevard. Proceed to Ch. Belvedere and turn right. Drive up the steep hill on Ch. Belvedere to Summit Circle.

Summit Woods in Westmount is a wooded area transected by numerous footpaths. From mid-April to late May, spring migrants find the woods an attractive place in which to rest and feed. At least 33 warbler species have been seen over the years and at least 24 are seen each year. Come out and participate in one or all of the Jim Houghton Spring Warbler Walks with an informal group of BPQ members. It's a perfect start to a spring day!

Rassemblement au belvédère sur Summit Circle à Westmount. Pour vous rendre au Summit Circle, dirigez vous vers le nord sur Côte-des-Neiges. Tourner à gauche sur le Boulevard. Poursuivre jusqu'au Ch. Belvédère et tourner à droite. Monter la côte abrupte sur le Ch. Belvédère jusqu'à Summit Circle.

Bois Summit offre un secteur boisé traversé par de nombreux sentiers. De la mi-avril à fin mai, les migrateurs printaniers trouvent cet endroit attrayant et s'y arrêtent pour se reposer et s'alimenter. Au fil des années, au moins 33 espèces de parulines ont été répertoriées et 24 espèces y sont observées chaque année. Vous êtes invités à vous joindre à l'une ou toutes les marches printanières Jim Houghton avec un groupe informel de membres de POQ. C'est une belle façon de commencer une journée du printemps.
