I had the confirmation of this bird, thanks to Wayne Wood for his help.

Mer Bleue is home to many unusual birds. The boardwalk offers birdwatchers a rich variety of species, as does an amble along the ridge. Nashville warblers; northern shrike; black-backed woodpecker; northern mockingbirds; several unusual sparrows: Lincoln, clay-coloured, and Henslow’s; sedge wren; olive-sided flycatcher; and orchard oriole have all been reliably identified in Mer Bleue, according to area birders Larry Neily and Tony Beck. ref:

    What a beauty, Yan! I just checked my two bird books and I can’t find this one. Sorry!

  • You’re so sweet Mike. I am puzzled. I check the internet for the last hours and I am not sure with either the some kind of Warbler or fly catcher.
    Take care :)

    • Yannik, I will venture to say that it is a Male Nashville Warbler. Perhaps somebody else will chime in to confirm :-)
  • Hi Bradley, thank you very much for your help :) It’s much appreciated. Those little birds travel from far away to our land and I read on a link that I will put up in my description that there are uncommon visitors to your Mer Bleue bog.
    Take care :)
