A few more warblers appeared across the street. One might be a juv. Wilson's
but I'm not certain. This will likely be my last posting since I don't really go out
anymore, so what's the point if I will have nothing to report. Besides, I'm becoming
too silly from being house-bound and my posts might be sabotaging my welcome
on this forum.

What? Why? How come? I just recommended this site to a university kid yesterday, what is he going to find if you stop posting? Lots and lots of nothing, that you hate yourself.

I second that. SS, please don't stop. Even if you don't have new photos, write a blog from your past experience and I bet there's a lot to write about. You are very engaging in your writing and we all enjoy reading them. Don't deprive us of that opportunity.

Local woodlot - Sept 5th in western Pickering:

10 am - mostly sunny at that time of day but I could only locate a few warblers on the portion of the street-side woodlot
on the south side, a site that was in shadow ... naturally. Spotted a couple of Am. Redstart, a RE vireo, and
Willow flycatcher. The portion of the woodlot that was well lit by the morning sun (west side) was completely
quiet ... no birds, except a Cardinal. The vegetation next to the roadway is rich with bushes and vines bearing
small clusters of grapes.

2 pm - Another Willow flycatcher, a single Am. Redstart (again), 1 x Ruby-crowned Kinglet, 1 x Chestnut-sided
warbler, 1 x Common Yellowthroat, and possibly another Canada warbler but I didn't see it long enough to assure
the ID. A sudden buzz-flutter that I detected about a meter from my right ear turned out to be a single hummingbird
that hovered and stared at me like I was some sort of unconventional feeder. It's a good thing I didn't have my mouth
open at the time. Maybe it was my glass of Rioja that attracted the hummer.

Lucky you got out and visited by an alcoholic hummer. How come your have so many Canada warblers? I used to think it's a rarity, now you make me think you have a secret breeding site somewhere in the east. All I got were two colleagues send me pics about ten mins apart to ID their sightings, turned out to be a very late Gold finch fledgling and a deceased Red-eye vireo. I drew a duckling because too windy to go outside.

It's not dead ... it's resting.
Red-eyed vireo's prefer kipping on their side.
especially when it's had a few too many.
you know ... red-eyed and hung-over.
Absolutely love those blue feet.

Your ducking is a Pied-eyed Darling.
Seldom seen beyond the realm of stippled paper.
Nice.
