We also visited the Toronto Islands with friends, and that's where I saw my first Mourning Warbler and we all enjoyed excellent viewing of a juvenile Bald Eagle. We took in "Ontario Swift Watch" one evening with friends, because watching a Chimney Swift roost is an amazing experience. We took an early morning trip to the Carden Plain area, where we got to see Eastern Meadowlarks, Bobolinks and Snipes. And to finish it off, we took in the Colonel Samuel Smith, "Spring Birding Festival", which is now in it's fourth year.
|Watching hundreds of Chimney Swifts go in for their nightly roost is a magical experience.|
