Lark Bunting on Amherst Island!

This morning I was doing breeding bird surveys in Burlington. At noon I was working away at the office in Aurora. Then news broke of a Lark Bunting on Amherst Island, so after finishing up at work I met up with Barb Charlton to see this bird, a species with about 30 OBRC-accepted records. I had never seen one in Ontario, and Barb had only observed one. Long story short, we were able to view the bird for some time as it sang, perched out in the open, and even did a sort of display flight. Here's one photo for now - I'll update this blog tomorrow with the full story.
