The past few weeks have witnessed an unusual number of Dickcissel sightings in southern and southwestern Ontario. However, even when this northeast push occurs, it is highly unlikely that there will be Dickcissels reported in Muskoka. So yesterday I headed to the sighting area in the Kawarthas and was immediately rewarded with a good look at a male Dickcissel (and later a female) singing away while perched on a wire just feet from the address noted by previous observers.

The Dickcissels in this location have been photographed carrying nesting materials. The specific location can be found on eBird by searching hotspots for “stakeout Dickcissel, Frank Hill Road (2017), Kawartha Lakes County.” Also perhaps interesting is that today's eBird splash page has a photo of a Dickcissel at this location.

Below is one of the pics I managed to snap.
