It was another cool morning for a walk. about 7 degrees Celsius. A great day for bird watching at Parc nature de l’Île de la Visitation. There were quite a few fellow birders who showed up for the walk led by Joel Coutu.


We saw and heard 11 warbler species. Here a few shots of the warblers that I managed to get. They would not stay still. always flying here and there.
