Kingston Area Birds 22 June 2024 – 28 June 2024

Kingston Field Naturalists (KFN) maintain records in a 50km radius of MacDonald Park, Kingston. Birders using eBird are encouraged to share their sightings with ‘Kingston FN’. Alternatively, please email  records directly to me – contact details below. Please note that some sightings may require review and remain unconfirmed unless stated otherwise. Species in bold type require completion of a rare bird report available on the KFN website or directly from me. If indicated, an OBRC report may be required instead (http://www.ofo.ca/site/Obrcreport). Some iPhone users report that bold type may be replaced by asterisks.

Overview: A quiet week overall, but still a few good sightings, highlighted by an American White Pelican at Prince Edward Point NWA.

Parish Notes:  This will be the last report of the summer unless something very rare shows up. I do need to make time for family.  I will resume near the end of summer once migration starts up again.

Please note the new email address at the bottom of the report that can be used to submit observations if you are not using eBird.
