Margaret and I set off towards St.Leonard/St. Anne de Madawaska this morning in hopes of locating the Vesper, Clay-colored sparrows and Western kingbird at the St. Leonard airport and the Green Herons and Least bittern in St.Anne.
While unsuccessful in locating the Western Kingbird, we located the Vesper along with 2 Clay-Colored sparrows and the big surprise of the day, 2 singing Field sparrows!
We than heard but did not see the Least Bittern. A very secretive fella. One of the green herons was seen by another birder in the first marsh.
Other interesting birds were a Mourning and Canada Warbler along with an unidentified hawk
Great day birding with plenty of action!
Sounds like a fantastic outing, Andrew! Congrats on some good species.
