Event: Barn Swallow (FIRST sighted)
Date of Sighting: 04/20/2013 Latitude: 45.5500 Longitude: -78.5833
Town: Algonquin Park State/Province: ON Country:
An enthusiastic group of about 45 birders braved sub-freezing temperatures,
strong winds, frequent heavy snow squalls, and snow/ice-covered trails to
observe 54 species of birds today throughout the Highway 60 Corridor. Record
high flood levels that resulted in the breaching of Opeongo Road at Costello
Picnic Grounds meant that we could not go to that traditional hotspot, but
alternative locations produced some interesting birds.

A few keen birders lingering after the late afternoon official end of the
trip observed the
first Barn Swallow.
