Crazy birding - May 11th, 2016 - Pelee Island

9 male Scarlet Tanagers within 50ft of me... Taken with my cell phone...

May 11th, 2016 was an absolute spectacle at Pelee Island. We casually strolled around Fish Point, on-and-off throughout the day... Not sure what it was like elsewhere on the island, but we didn't really care. Amazing numbers of warblers and other neotropic migrants were present. It's nearly impossible to document an event like this through photographs, but I've done my best to show off some views of Kingbirds and Scarlet Tanagers that were littering the point... 

Check them out below! And also check out the guess ebird checklist for Fish Point - for some rough tallies... Insane!
