When we reach Renews we headed straight for Bear Cover Point Road which is notorious for attracting rare birds during the Fall. We held out hopes that we might be lucky enough to come upon a rare warbler, maybe even the Prairie Warbler spotted earlier in the week.
We only had about 60 seconds before the bird was gone. This didn't give me any chance to reset my camera because it was clear that the bird was flighty and might disappear any minute.
With little notice it vanished. We thought with a bit of luck we might re-find it later in the day. We looked over the area before proceeding up the road. On the way back we thought that we got a brief glimpse of it but there was no opportunity to get any more pictures.
At the end of the day we were very grateful for the two experienced birders who had this one in their sights when we arrived. This happens more than you think. The great birds are often found by people who know what they are doing. Then, on the other hand, great birds sometimes just pop out when you least expect it!
