Claps of thunder at dawn were followed by stair-rodding rain for much of the day, thus our intended boat trip to the BPQ sanctuary islands off the eastern end of Montreal island has been postponed until tomorrow.

However … it did mean that we added a Magnolia Warbler to the garedn list for the year and managed a photo of this cheerful Blackpoll Warbler.  Both were busy catching insects in the fir trees by our boundary.
