Update: New addition to the family at TTP!



See how well our Trumpeter Swan family is doing at TTP.  Here they are in Embayment D, checking out the new coastal wetland.

Warblers and more...



Here's a glimpse of the banded birds so far (including the raptors and shorebirds).  From top, left corner:
First year American Redstart, Chestnut-sided Warbler, Canada Warbler, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Group picture (Nashville Warbler, American Redstart, two Northern Parula, Black-throated Green Warbler, Nashville Warbler, Tennessee Warbler and Cape May Warbler), Tennessee Warbler, Sharp-shinned Hawk, Solitary Sandpiper, Spotted Sandpiper, Least Sandpier, Semi-palmated Plover.

The change in the weather has many bird watchers excited.  Mixed flocks of Warblers, Vireos and Sparrows are expected to moved through the park in good numbers today.  This is a great time of year to visit Tommy Thompson Park! Bring your binoculars and field guide for fall migration in Toronto's Urban Wilderness.

Here is an example of the banding efforts done in one day.
Great work TTPBRS team!
