I'd love to blog more about the whole experience but with no internet out there, almost no cell service, and a pretty full day herping, birding, and keeping up with daily chores, blogging takes a backseat. It's also nice to kind of "un-plug" while out there with no T.V. and not being glued to a computer (except for some data entry).
So far I've managed to add two long overdue birds to my Ontario bird list - Chuck-Wills-Widow and Laughing Gull. I was hoping to add some bigger rarities but have had some terrible luck. Twice I've left the tip only for a rare bird to turn up the following morning! Missing out on the Swainson's Warbler and Bewick's Wren hurt bad. It still stings... Keeping up with tradition, a Loggerhead Shrike turned up yesterday after I had already left the tip that morning!
Here are some random phone-photos:

A late Evening Grosbeak
Me checking some beautiful inland wetlands on the point.
Not everyday you see Cerulean Warbler and Yellow-throated Warbler in the hand side-by-side.
Woke-up to this photo text - damn Swainson's Warbler!
These two photos were taken from the exact same location - looking south to the dunes and north to what you'd think was somewhere in northern Ontario.
