In the quiet....
I haven't been out a lot lately for various reasons. But some of the times I have been out, I value them not so much for getting records or photos of a great diversity of things, but for the quiet and stillness I am able to experience. It is therapeutic, bo...

Return of the Dickcissels
They're back! Over the course of the past few days, Dickcissels have returned to places they were present at in 2017. Of course the site just east of Wheatley has had them for a couple of weeks or more this year, but that was a location where they had been ...

Early June Jaunts
There is no question that the bird migration has slowed down, but that just means there is more time to look at so many other things. I tend to roam a bit more, spending less time at bird hotspots like Rondeau, and spend more time elsewhere. However there a...

Recognizing prairie
Yesterday,  June 2 2018, was National Prairie Day. At least it was in the USA where tallgrass prairie has a considerably greater profile than here in Canada or Ontario. That is not to say that the recognition isn't deserved in Canada, as historically there ...

Wildflowers of May
All those showers of April, and also into May, have done their job well. The woodland wildflowers look quite lush! At Rondeau Tuliptree Trail, Spicebush Trail and South Point Trail (the drier, west side) are all great places to find an abundance of wildflow...

An unsual last full week of May
It was very quiet this last full week of May, partly due to the decline in bird action, and also birders, but also because the Rondeau campground remained closed due to flooding! No campers on the holiday weekend or during the week made the atmosphere somew...

Tis the season for caution
I had intended for this post to be made several weeks ago. Regardless, it is never too late to advise readers that the risk of encountering ticks that may carry the dreaded spirochete that gives one Lyme Disease, is high. Anytime the temperature is above fr...

Soggy Mid-May action
It has been wet this last week or so. How wet you ask? In about a 5 day period, we had approximately 10 cm (4") of rain. Many farm fields were saturated, and there is still standing water in places. Rondeau was subject to high water levels to begin with, bu...

Birds, birds and more
It is a great time of year to be out. Birds are about at their peak of diversity. In Chatham-Kent, the general Rondeau area is the place to be (with all due respect to the many other natural areas in C-K). Just a few days ago, the Keith McLean Conservation ...

Summer Tanager, Prothonotary Warbler, Cerulean Warbler and more
Yesterday was a very good day to be birding at Rondeau. There were lots of birders, as expected, and it is a highlight of the season to meet up with long-term acquaintances from both near and far. It was also a good day for a pleasant diversity of birds, es...
