Bird Report

Huttopia May 18, 2019

8 degrees, 8 people

Had an amazing hike at Huttopia this morning with a really nice group. We heard and saw a lot of birds on the walk up to the main “centre de vie” building.  Once in the woods the ambiance was amazing.  A hermit thrush, winter wren and blackburnian warbler were all singing in a low area of the forest at around 9am.  It was magical!  Some good views of the  blackburnian warbler and oven bird. We saw a sparrow that was hard to identify.  it looked like a white-throated but the yellow dots were not present and the black and white striped crown was oddly half present.  It was blotchy.  Probably a young white throated sparrow.
