A Golden Father’s Day

For Father’s Day, Emily and I spent the early afternoon at Point Pelee. Unfortunately Sarah had to work so it was just the two of us.  The weather was absolutely beautiful and Emily was so happy to be out in it!  I loaded up the stroller and headed south down the tip road in search of the Prothonotary Warbler that was reported at Bridge F on the Woodland Trail.

As we got closer to the bridge, I could hear the bird clearly singing across the slough.  Well that was easy!  Well it wasn’t so easy.  It took a little while to get a visual on the bird as he was singing high up in the foliage.  He eventually came down to the forest floor to look for food, offering stunning views.  The golden colour of the bird never ceases to amaze me.  I did see him carry food to a nest cavity but I didn’t see a female.   Do males bring food to a female on a nest?

A perfect Father’s Day!
