(Photo of Yellow-rumped Warbler ...) Unofficial May Bird Walk - Tivoli Island

I was on my own for this walk. That's not surprising given it was a last minute notice and early on a work day. I'll post a list of sightings anyway to give some idea of what was there. Most interesting were a Black-throated Green Warbler and a Spotted Sandpiper.

Time spent was just under an hour. There were 26 species seen in that time, not a bad number. [I was back the next day, the 8th, and added Downy Woodpecker and several Northern Parulas which gave very close looks.] This time of year visiting Tivoli Island on a daily basis is a good idea as different warblers move in and out.

We'll give Tivoli Island another try at some point. However, being in town, weekdays are the best times to visit as there are far fewer (often noisy) people wandering the trails.
