This weekend is really starting to look good. Unfortunately I have 2 more exams - one on Saturday and my last exam of my undergrad career on the following Wednesday. Currently, strong southwest winds are forecasted for Saturday through Monday - hopefully strong enough to suck some southwestern species up from Texas! If my studying is going well I may sneak away for maybe Monday...we'll see.
In other news, a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher showed up yesterday in Thunder Bay! I haven't heard any news on whether it is still around. Here is a shitty photo of the only Scissor-tailed I have seen in Ontario - one from Luther Marsh in the summer of 2010.

By the way, I added three year birds yesterday in Guelph - Northern Rough-winged Swallow, Barn Swallow, and Greater Yellowlegs.
