Garth Riley lead our October 15th walk at Colonel Samuel Smith Park. It was a cool and windy day under a threatening sky. Yellow-rumped Warblers are late migrants, and there were lots of them in the bushes. Despite their abundance, they were still hard to get a look at because they were moving quickly and the bushes all still have leaves. It was nice to have a Peregrine Falcon fly by the parking lot as the walk was starting. Another surprise was a Ruddy Duck in the harbour area.

The threat of rain became reality when we were hit with a downpour at around 10:30. Most people packed it in at that point, but the shower passed quickly and anyone who stayed was rewarded with some nice birds in and around the pond.
