Birding at Point Pelee - top day

Today we have had a good day!  Not only have we seen Prothonotary Warbler, but the female shown below collected nesting material within 15 feet of us and then looked at the camera for several seconds.  Perfect.  In addition, we have seen Worm-eating Warbler as well.  As can be imagined, there was a massive rugby scrum to see this bird.  I didn't get any images though, as I would not have been the most popular Cornishman in Canada.  We also saw Black-billed Cuckoo, Sora Rail, American Redstart, Chestnut-sided Warbler, Black and White Warbler, Black-throated Green Warbler, Magnolia Warbler, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Nashville Warbler, Bald Eagle, Screech Owl, Great Horned Owl, Orchard Orioles, and many Baltimore Orioles.
