1, First Basic, male, present 07 May 2002; found by: David R. Don; documentation provided by: David R. Don. Published comments: Full details of this record, including a description and circumstances of the observation, have been published by Don (2002). The date of occurrence (7 May) was a day of massive migration over a large area, resulting in other birds of note being found at Point Pelee, including a Blue Grosbeak (Guiraca caerulea) and a Painted Bunting (Passerina ciris) (Wormington 2002a). As noted above, this is only the fourth accepted record of Vermilion Flycatcher in Ontario. All four records have involved first basic males. 4th (OBRC accepted) Ontario record for this species. 4th OBRC accepted record for southern Ontario for this species. Record accepted by OBRC (record number 331?). Record published in 2002 OBRC annual report. Published location: Point Pelee National Park, Essex County*******************uploaded October 6, 2012 by Mike Burrell

1, female, present 07 May 2002; found by: Michael A. Biro; Elena Biro; Ian Cannell; documentation provided by: Michael A. Biro. Published comments: By far, the most frequent site of occurrence of Blue Grosbeak in Ontario is at Point Pelee National Park, Essex. Recently, Wormington (2003a) summarized the history of occurrence of this species in the park. Forty-seven valid records have been reported (many, but not all, of which have been reviewed by the OBRC). He has documented an increasing trend in the regularity and frequency of occurrences there since 1979. It is interesting to note that the pattern of occurrence in Ontario, with the vast majority of sightings occurring during the spring migration period, differs somewhat from that in the Maritime provinces, where autumn occurrences are more frequent than they are here (Wormington 2003a). 60th (OBRC accepted) Ontario record for this species. 58th OBRC accepted record for southern Ontario for this species. Record accepted by OBRC (record number 366?). Record published in 2002 OBRC annual report. Published location: Point Pelee National Park, Essex County*******************uploaded October 6, 2012 by Mike Burrell
