Cape Chignecto Provincial Park Adventure Day 18, July 16
It was a good day with a slight cloud overcast and warmer then it has been, about 26 degrees, and muggy. There was some coastal fog but it dispersed later in the morning.
We decided to try the northern side of the park again for birds. The bird life is well scattered and hard to find in the central forested areas. On a high note we did hear a Long-eared Owl and Tennessee Warbler the other day but the deep forest is a hard place to photograph birds if you can find them. Our best success has been along the coastal bluffs of the north side. This is likely due to the fact that the strip loggers, old and new, cannot butcher these areas due to the hazardous conditions so the only remaining old growth forest is here especially the old growth deciduous forest.
It was here on the park's north side where we found and photographed my beloved Blackburnian Warbler. Photos are below.
.........will fledge this weekend.
