scan Lake Ontario for flocks of vocal Whimbrel, their
trilling calls often heard before they are seen,
every day from from
now until the end of May. Early morning is best. Peak days typically
those around May 24th. Directions: Take Kipling Avenue south of Lake
Shore Blvd to where it ends in a parking lot. Walk south to lake
where a short peninsula juts out into Lake Ontario.
