This afternoon I went over to the Strathroy Conservation Area. The weather was pretty darn good for the 7th of October. I saw several young RED-BELLIED WOODPECKERS, one DOWNY WOODPECKER, a few BLUE JAYS, two RUBY-CROWNED KINGLETS, quite a few AMERICAN ROBINS, a flock of CEDAR WAXWINGS, some YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS, a few WHITE-THROATED SPARROWS, a few NORTHERN CARDINALS and a couple AMERICAN GOLDFINCH.
I saw some butterflies, too. A MOURNING CLOAK, two EASTERN COMMA, a MILBERT’S TORTOISESHELL, a CABBAGE WHITE and a PAINTED LADY.
A very COLOURFUL, fall afternoon.
