Orillia is a friendly place with people who are connected like various strands of a cob web. When, in this case, a bird is spotted, the whole web vibrates with excitement. And all the birders congregate just as the spider might do for a fly in its web.
So it was on Friday.
There were several groups 20 - between 10 and 30 - maybe 180 to 200 birds visible and maybe a couple of groups unseen?
Just a couple of examples.
Vicki and I are in our car, windows down and some of the birds are right beside us, even coming toward us as though oblivious of our presence.
And the day was sunny and mild - what a show!
