Re(3): Say's Phoebe in Algonquin continues in the afternoon

*This report was originally posted by Lev Frid on ONTBIRDS (Oct. 1, 2018) and is provided here with the kind permission of the Ontario Field Ornithologists.

Hi folks,

According to various sources, the Say's Phoebe is still being cooperative
in the same area in the Old Airfield.

An interesting addendum - a distant but diagnostic photo of an unidentified
bird taken by Ashley Baines on September 27th at the Old Airfield, was
posted and identified as the Say's Phoebe on my initial thread about the
finding of this bird on the "Ontario Rare Bird Alert" Facebook page (highly
recommended) on the 29th. A congratulations is in order for Ashley for
noticing and photographing it, and thus adding another two days to its
documented stay! Hopefully this means that it will continue for many
birders who have yet to see it.


Enter the Mew Lake Campground access road. Park at the Old Railway Bike
Trail lot (second left after campground office) and walk into Airfield.
Phoebe is perching on top of low conifers almost directly in the middle of
Airfield - visible from path, moving around a lot, singing intermittently.
Right now itís opposite the controlled burn information panel but has been
flying back and forth across trail.
