Summit Park

A shortish walk away from Mount Royal Park is another hill. At the top of this hill is Summit Park, a small woodland encircled by Summit Circle and houses. This is supposed to be a site for Eastern Screech-owl, sometimes seen sunning themselves in southerly-facing nest holes, but we didn't manage to track any down. We did see and/or hear Northern Cardinal, Black-capped Chickadee, Least Flycatcher, Red-eyed Vireo, Common Grackle, Broad-winged Hawk, Cedar Waxwing, Great Crested Flycatcher, Hairy Woodpecker and the tan form of White-throated Sparrow.

Summit Park was first visited early afternoon on June 4th. Our second visit was next day at about 7am. Birds were slightly more in evidence and in addition to the previous day's species we saw and/or heard American Robin, Eastern Wood-Pewee, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Downy Woodpecker, House Wren, Blue Jay, House Finch, Mourning Dove and a female Scarlet Tanager.
