Yesterday's heavy thunderstorms have moved on, leaving clear skies and much cooler temperatures. It was 48F this morning as I pulled into the parking lot at Magee Marsh. A cool breeze felt refreshing, but also a bit ominous; did the birds move on?
Some additional highlights included a roosting Screech Owl, a bobbing Woodcock, boisterous House Wrens, female Prothonotary Warbler, Northern Parula, and Swainson's Thrush.
A Black-throated Green Warbler appeared near the boardwalk as I was leaving, so...
I made a quick trip through the Ottawa National Wildlife Drive on the way home. A Black-necked Stilt was a highlight, as well as several Trumpeter Swans. I'd be home by 11 am.
