I was lucky to find this Connecticut Warbler last week (Sep 27) at Strathroy Sewage Lagoons. A lifer for me!

Thanks for posting, lagoons sound very interesting. No pipers?

Way to go professor! So that's what the creature of the Strathroy Lagoon looks like. So much like a Mourning warbler but with too much eye make-up to hide the evidence of that lachrymose period. Way, way better picture of one than I once got at Duffin's Creek. Only had a 135mm lens deployed at a considerable distance before the bird vanished. Perhaps back to Connecticut? Who really knows what lurks in the mind of a Yankee warbler. You trekkers are amazing. Such a long haul for an elusive individual. I tip my hat to you if I could only find it. I wonder ... whot's it like to be really, really good at something?

Only shorebirds there were some Yellowlegs. There has been better shorebird action lately in wet farm fields with Hudsonian Godwits and others showing up in a lot of places last week of September and still some left.

Oh wow, what a great find and photo. I was debating whether to head out but couldn't find much info about the kind of permission did I need to get into the lagoons - is it open to public?

The Strathroy Sewage Lagoons are open, no permits requited and attract ducks, shorebirds and songbirds. I saw on eBird someone actually did refind the Connecticut Warbler the day after, after a two hour search.

Thanks for the info. I'll remember for my next trip in that direction.
