Day 26 – Canadian birding

Lark Sparrow – seen at Oak Openings Metro Park on our way to Point Pelee in Canada

This post is, of necessity, short – we have to be up at 04.00 to get to Point Pelee (Canada) for dawn. Although Point Pelee is only 35 miles or so across Lake Erie from Magee Marsh, the road trip is about 120. We took the opportunity to call in at Oak Openings Metro Park for a couple of special birds – Golden-winged Warbler and Lark Sparrow. Both of which we managed to see. Then it was north to Detroit, across the border and then east to Point Pelee. Here a late afternoon walk around The Tip produced a reasonable list, including a couple of GABRaT ll ticks.
