Black-throated Blue Warbler

Canada, Point Pelee and Michigan 9-24 May 2004

  • A full day at Pelee with some interesting reverse migration off the Tip, including a Dickcissel. There was also some fine raptor movement including a Goshawk flying over Post Woods, a Peregrine and an Osprey whilst an Eastern Screech-owl was seen well through telescopes in a heavily foliated apple tree. Several new species of warbler were seen including our only Cerulean Warbler of the tour....Dave Milsom reports for Birdfinders

Ontario & Michigan, Rondeau to Whitefish Point, 12-21 May 2008

  • From the Visitor centre we walked the Tulip Tree Trail. First bird seen was a Least Flycatcher then Mick was onto a Hooded Warbler. Other birds included Blackburnian, Black-throated Green, Magnolia and Black-throated Blue Warblers...Ray Thorneycroft reports.

Toronto, Canada July 2006

  • The holiday started in Toronto, the largest city in Canada, and although I had only limited time for birding here I still saw a good variety of species.  Even within the middle of the city it is possible to see some interesting birds...Chris Hill reports

Southern Ontario, Canada 14th - 21st May 2006

  • A great introduction to North American birding at a (fairly) relaxed pace. My time was limited, which prevented me from looking for turtles and other wildlife, and visiting various other sites nearby, such as Kopegaron Woods...George Watola reports.

Carden Alvar, near Toronto 18 -19 July 2005

  • Birders with a weekend in the Toronto area should consider a short trip north of Toronto to the Carden Alvar  Important Bird Area (IBA). This area is approximately 200 km north of Toronto and has a wide range of habitat, in particular grasslands, and a very high concentration of birds...Gary Babic reports.

Canada Warbler

Southern Ontario, Canada:
15 to 25 May 2004

  • This was the first time that most of us had been anywhere in North America in the spring and therefore it was decided early on that the main aim of the trip would be to try and see as many species of wood-warbler as we could, rather than simply build up a large trip list. To this end we concentrated on birding the woodland trails, somewhat neglecting the wetland habitats and ended the trip with a very respectable total of 33 species of wood-warbler in nine days birding....Lee Dingain reports

Gray Jay

British Columbia, Vancouver Island, Whistler and Vancouver July-Aug 2003

  • Talking my wife into visiting a sewage works as the final act of a memorable holiday was not going to be easy. In the end it was all down to timing. I "accidentally" arrived back at the airport an hour early and suggested that we should explore down this attractive looking side road..a Northern Harrier quartering the end of the runway helped my case....John Girdley reports.

Canada - Ontario August 16 -30 2002

  • Awoke during the night and all was dark, but, drifting through the open window and it's insect mesh, was a distance, eerie wailing sound - of course - a Common Loon - evocative of the northern wilderness and what a start to the list!  The next morning, I was awoken by Martin, sitting outside on the veranda, saying he was 'surrounded by woodpeckers'....Peter Reed reports

Ontario, Canada 9 -17 May 2002

  • We went back to the Visitor Centre to try to warm up a little.  The main items of news were that a Painted Bunting had been found back along the road near the "Dunes" car park. Additionally, there was a Townsend Solitaire in the same area.  That warmed me up a bit!....Bob Biggs

Canada  [Point Pelee, Long Point , Rondeau] 17 - 23 May 2001

  • This would prove to be our best day. Three Grey Catbirds were in the garden area as we went outside to assess weather conditions. It was raining hard but very foggy.  A bedragelled Song Sparrow showed well as we left for Long Point. Our journey took longer than expected as the fog was fairly dense in places.  However, we had a feeling we were about to have a good day and we were right!.....Bob Biggs reports.

Canada- Quebec and Ontario July 2, 2001 to July 29, 2001

  • This trip was not a birding trip, but rather a family holiday with some birding hours thrown in, and outside those  hours always keeping an eye on what was flying around.  Ny daughter Wendy, accompanied me on most of the birding walks, but wants to keep that secret, as she thinks it diminishes her chances to meet interesting boys ("I don't carry binoculars when there are boys").  She is good in pointing out birds which I hadn't discovered yet, and she has better ears than me, and two see more than one.  We live in Europe, in the south of the Netherlands...Lots of excellent photographs but a BIG download (750Kb)...Peter Vercruijsse reports

Southern Manitoba    13 August - 1 September 1997

  • This report covers my second trip to Canada...  The whole of this flight was in daylight and the sky was cloudless as we flew over Greenland, giving the other passengers and us unforgettable views of the ice floes, glaciers and ice caps.  The flight from Toronto to Winnipeg also allowed me to see the awesome sight of the Great Lakes from the air...David Kelly reports

Central Canada (Manitoba)    May/June'95

  • I saw 185 species of bird on this trip but managed to miss Red-eyed Vireo.  I would say that Canadian birds are a lot tamer and more colourful than European birds, although there are a lot of species in common.  I would recommend birding in southern Manitoba to anyone, it's superb...
