Volume 4, Number 8 - May 27, 1999




May was generally hot and sunny until the first good spring rain finally came on May 19, it reduced the fire hazard but didn't fill the wells or lakes. More rain dampened two days of the long weekend and continued into the next week. We needed it!


As the spring migration winds down, we have to say it was one of the most uneventful spring migrations in years. The weather was too good, no bad weather fallouts, northern migrants went through quickly, many northern warbler species not even recorded, few shorebirds at the Bracebridge Lagoons.

The shorebird habitat was not as good as usual at the Bracebridge Lagoons, and maybe they were attracted to large low water mudflats along Georgian Bay instead. We did see both species of YELLOWLEGS, a few LEAST and SOLITARY SANDPIPERS, and SEMIPALMATED PLOVER and maybe some more species will come before the end of the month. On May 18, 2 dozen AMERICAN PIPITS were seen there and on May 21, 2 RUDDY DUCKS, male and female, first ever pair at the lagoons.

Some good sightings in May were a NORTHERN MOCKINGBIRD at the MTO garage on Muskoka Rd 35 on May 16, that's just north from where Rd 4 turns to Windermere, and a BLUE-WINGED WARBLER on Clearwater Lake Rd south of Port Sydney off Deer Lake Rd, both found by Jon Grandfield. We apologize for calling the gentleman who lives on Clearwater Lake Rd a "nutcase", let's just say he has some unconventional ideas, like thinking he owns the road. Luckily by May 22 the bird moved 300 meters north of the Hughes Rd corner, out of his sight. Jon heard another bird singing a BLUE-WINGED song on Proudfoot Rd which is between Domtar Rd and Old Muskoka Rd north of Allensville. The MOCKINGBIRDS that were on Deer Lake Rd last year haven't returned so far. BLACKBILLED CUCKOOs arrived on May 22, 2 were calling back and forth across the pipeline behind the Bracebridge Lagoons. Later a curious COOPERS HAWK flew in to investigate noises in the parking lot at the end of Henry Rd. When it saw Al and Dan it departed in a hurry down the hiking trail.

Just when the INDIGO BUNTINGS return we occasionally get reports of BLUE GROSBEAKS around feeders and back yards, this year one was reported from Port Carling on May 10. So far there is no confirmed record for this species in Muskoka. What we need is a picture since it's possible for non-birders to confuse them with first year male INDIGO BUNTINGS that also have brown on the wings. BLUE GROSBEAKS are larger of course and its wingbars are distinctive, but unfortunately the field guides don't show a first year INDIGO for comparison.

The Muskoka Field Naturalists Birdathon was held this year on May 15, they started off good with VIRGINIA and SORA RAILS and GREEN HERON at Sparrow Lake but later the migrants were hard. Total for the day was 87 species. We hope to have the complete list for the next nature news.

Many birds have already fledged their first young and young orphaned birds are arriving at Wing and a Prayer. They are currently looking for adoptive wild parents for two orphaned CANADA GEESE goslings, please let them know if you see a goose family. At the Bracebridge Lagoons on the 22nd the first crop of 15 young mallards was tagging along behind mama duck. Little Killdeers were hiking around the parking lot at Big Chute on May 14. COMMON RAVENS fledged three young from the nest on Brydons Bay Rd on May 4. BELTED KINGFISHERS are nesting in a hole about 15 feet up on the lip of an embankment beside Fraserburg Road immediately across from Roxborough Road, nice accessible spot to view a typical Kingfisher nest.

Many of the birds received by Wing and a Prayer have been mauled by house cats and if the physical damage doesn't kill them the bacteria from the cat's saliva will. There is now a not-for-profit Canadian campaign designed to educate people about the environmental impact of domestic cats on small wildlife and bird populations. The CATS IN KENNELS PROGRAM promotes the philosophy of keeping your cat indoors or in a safe, enclosed outdoor kennel to protect both pet cats and wildlife. Their website is http://www3.sympatico.ca/samgreen/webcats.html If you want proof that this is a serious problem get the new National Geographic documentary, "The Secret Life of Cats" now available for home video for $19.95 + shipping and handling by calling 1-800-627-5162. This excellent film documents domestic cat predation on wildlife in the United States, England, Australia and New Zealand.

Sylvia Purdon and Jim Maquire were boating around Sparrow Lake looking for terns on May 16. At the Common Tern colony there were about 12 COMMON TERNS showing breeding behaviour, male carrying food, three in a group flying over with great noise. They were on the north tip flying in and out totally surrounded by RING-BILLED GULLS, a grim scene. Three more were on the Margaret Island spit with 13 CASPIAN TERNS presumed to be from a colony in Georgian Bay. And more trouble, 40 CORMORANTS were on the tern island with a dozen more swimming around. CORMORANTS are exploding elsewhere in Muskoka too, Barbara Taylor counted 10 dozen around Eleanor Is in Lake Muskoka.

For a few days we thought we might have the first Muskoka nesting of TRUMPETER SWANS. In mid May Jim Maguire was watching a pair in a quiet bay on the east side of Sparrow Lake. One bird sat first on a pile of reeds, then on a small island for several days but the pair has now abandoned the site and split up, domestic strife? This was probably the young untagged pair seen on the Severn River in April.

Another reintroduction project is also going well, the MNR estimates there are now 20,000 WILD TURKEYS roaming Southern Ontario. Time to increase the hunting season boys! In Muskoka they're still moving north perhaps beyond their original range. Lots of sightings coming in now as far north as Port Sydney, on Hughes Rd April 11 and a week later 4km north beside Muskoka Rd 10. In mid April a gobbler was killed when it took out the grill of a speeding pickup truck on Barkway Rd. Their breeding season starts early and he had a harem, maybe he had time to fertilize this years eggs before his death, maybe not.

PRAIRIE WARBLERs are fairly common on the off shore islands on the east side of Georgian Bay but its hard to find one without taking a boat trip. You might be able to find one this year near Big Chute on the Simcoe side of the river. A male has set up a territory at the first hydro line crossing Little Chute Lane. Best walk down the private rd and listen for his call. Heard there May 12 to 15.

Birders in central Ontario were dismayed to learn that the Port Perry Sewage Lagoons (AKA Nonquon Lagoons) would be drained and filled after the new Sewage Treatment Plant is built this year. This was one of the best shorebird hotspots in Ontario and good for ducks as well. The birders are trying to organize a mass lobby to convince the municipality to leave the ponds as is. The same thing happened in Bracebridge 15 years ago and they did leave the ponds after the Muskoka Field Naturalists pointed out lots of good reasons including using them for a backup if the treatment plant failed. A letter from the club with pictures and statistics was sent to the town. One day in May 1981, 485 shorebirds were counted and a total of 23 shorebird species and 18 duck species were recorded there by 1984. The lagoons are now a popular recreational attraction, no kidding!

And speaking of the Bracebridge lagoons that aren't used for raw sewage anymore, let's change the name. Jim Wilson who spent many enjoyable hours there didn't like calling them sewage lagoons, he always referred to them as the Bracebridge Ponds. In memory of Jim, from this point on Muskoka Nature News will refer to the Bracebridge Sewage lagoons as "the BRACEBRIDGE PONDS".


Correction: The Eastern Hognose Snake reported in the last issue on Roxborough Rd was living under a tree BESIDE a house not under the house.


One of Muskoka's most common and beautiful orchids the PINK-LADYSLIPPER was in peak bloom along Ragged Rapids Rd on May 25.


We hoped to get some negative comment from a picture labeled UHLER'S SUNDRAGON that we posted with the last Nature News. I suppose the expert dragonfliers were too busy or too polite to reply. In fact, it was not UHLER'S SUNDRAGON and you should strike out this species from the list published in Nature News V4N7 and add AMERICAN EMERALD. The photo is of a recently emerged AMERICAN EMERALD, eyes not yet green. Dragonflies can fool the novice working through an unfamiliar key, a key reason being they continue to develop after they emerge often changing color, not to mention the ones that develop with the colors of the opposite sex.

We have heard rumors that an Ontario Odonata Atlas is now in the works, too soon for an official announcement but the methodology has been worked out, looks like there will be three regional coordinators for the province, east, west, and north. Let's hope the recording process will not be too complex for the amateurs.

Many Odes are now flying, probably 2 to 3 weeks ahead of their normal flight dates. Thousands of NORTHERN BLUETS were flying around the back cell of the Bracebridge Ponds, also a few CRIMSON-RINGED WHITEFACE. DOT-TAILED SKIMMERS were flying at the pond beside the hiking trail accessed from Henry Rd in Bracebridge.

On May 10 and 11, a rarely seen butterfly species was found on the edge of a clearing in the Muskoka woods. Al Sinclair was stocking some newly emerged dragonflies on a sunny spot at the entrance to a bush road when he spotted a small greenish butterfly working on violet flowers. Two rows of orange spots on the hind underwing, upper forewing black, blue on upper hindwing, it had to be a male EARLY HAIRSTREAK!! The adrenaline flowed.

No camera handy and the butterfly disappeared anyway after about two minutes. No proof!! The next day Al staked out the same location camera ready. Sure enough it appeared, first basking on exposed bedrock, then posing on some wet earth where Al quickly shot off a roll of slide film while lying on his belly, camera 10 inches away. It then moved to some violet flowers and more pictures were taken on print film. It disappeared about 15 minutes after it was first seen and did not return in the following days. Pictures are posted on the Nature News Website.

The following information was gleaned from "Butterflies of Canada" published last year: "The lack of sightings may be because they spend most of their time in the forest canopy and not because they are rare. The species has been long been associated with Beech trees but only recently was it discovered that the female lays her eggs on developing beech nuts, after they hatch the larvae eat the husk and later bore into the developing seed".

Since the EARLY HAIRSTREAK is thought to be rare in all of its range, sightings are tracked by the Natural Heritage Information Centre, it wasn't long before we heard from Donald Sutherland looking for the UTM coordinates. Don reports that they've had one other sighting this spring, Peter and Dawn Burke found one on April 24 beside the Galway-Cavendish Forest Access Rd 20 km north of Buckhorn. The NHIC located in Peterborough has a wealth of data of interest to naturalists on their website: www.mnr.gov.on.ca/MNR/nhic/nhic.html. The NHIC was formed in 1993 with the goal to generate a permanent and dynamic atlas and data bank on the character, distribution and conservation status of natural areas, critical flora and fauna, communities and special features in Ontario. Be sure to check out their latest newsletter posted on the site http://www.muskoka.com/~sinclair/news.html.

Butterfly sightings from elsewhere: May 6 Nancy Ironside found 4 HENRY'S ELFINS on Wiley Rd in Carden Township. Also OLYMPIA MARBLE and MEADOW FRITILLARY. Al and Joan Sinclair had a half dozen COLUMBINE DUSKYWINGS on Alvar Rd May 16, also in Carden. If you're down on Wiley Rd check out the sightings book at #117, Ron Reid's and Janet Grand's cabin, they also have an amazing old crabapple tree that turns white with blossoms attracting butterflies, bees and bugs by the thousands. In Simcoe Co along Little Chute Lane at Big Chute, Al Sinclair had 8 species on May 15 including DREAMY DUSKYWING, CHRYXUS ARCTIC and ROADSIDE SKIPPER.

There were many good moth nights in Muskoka in mid May, the best the 18th, warm and humid weather brought out 16 species including the first POLYPHEMUS, early date for the first giant silkworm moth. The first LUNA MOTH flew in on May 23 this year.
