Ontario, Canada, day one

On our first full day in Toronto, we had a look around the normal tourist sites. By mid afternoon, we turned towards some birding.  We decided to check out a couple of public parks on the lake side.  We were not disappointed.  The weather has been very humid and thundery and I'm pretty sure there must have been a fall of passerines as the bushes and trees were bouncing.  We had eight warbler species within an hour plus many other spectacular migrants.  Below are a few images of Black-throated Green Warbler, Yellow Warbler and Palm Warbler.  Yellow-rumped Warbler were numerous but we only saw one Black & White, one Canada and one Chestnut-sided Warbler.  I will try and upload images and information if and when I get access to the 'net.


  1. Beautiful birds; can't wait to see the rest.

  2. Good shots Steve hope you and the missus are having a good trip mate will keep looking for more updates, keep that shutter going and may all your shots be good ones.

  3. Hi Steve, and young Pat. Looks like a brilliant experience you will both have in Canada. These first three are Stunners, not one little brown job.
