So, on Saturday, Marianne and I decided to try a different approach and park ourselves at the Tip of Point Pelee to see if any flew by in the late morning. I had a wedding in Cambridge to go to later in the day so my time was limited to the morning, which was rainy/cloudy the entire time. However, it was decent down there despite this, with many Common Loon flybys, a couple Bald Eagles and Red-shouldered Hawks overhead, lots of Bonaparte's Gulls, and a single American White Pelican that flew in over the rough waters on the lake and landed on the sandy spit off the Tip.

Not a single swallow went by in the morning so we made our way up to Sparrow Field. Not a bad day for passerines with many Song, Swamp, White-crowned, and Chipping Sparrows, w/ singles of White-throated, Fox, and American Tree Sparrow. We also had a Gray Catbird and later had a Northern Saw-whet Owl pointed out to us by a group led by Paul Pratt.
