Mockingbird at Humber Bay: Oct. 4, 2022

I don’t remember seeing Mockingbirds in my childhood except for the occasional summer visitor. My grandfather’s (Dr. J. Murray Speirs) 1985 Birds of Ontario says: Mockingbirds are rare in Ontario except around Niagara Falls and perhaps Pelee.

Things have changed and we now can see them in any month of the year and Humber Bay West is one of the best places to do so.

    Great birds and other creatures! I can hardly wait to get there the second time.
    Is that why you scheduled two of Humber Bay, Miles? (ha ha)
