Michel Roy and Frank Branch were in the right place at the right time on Tuesday to get a few nice photos of an immature Prairie Warbler at Village des Poirier near Maisonnette which is not far from Caraquet. The Prairie Warbler is an occasional visitor to New Brunswick usually in the fall and always a very welcome find. It is a tail pumper like our common native Palm Warbler.

**Jean Renton and Nicole Ferris  went on a targeted mushroom hunt on Tuesday. They saw lots of Chanterelles and some Hedgehog mushrooms. The one prize they found was the Blue Chanterelle (Polyozellus multiplex). This mushroom grows in blue clumps producing a white spore print. It is uncommon in New Brunswick but I understand it is more common in western Canada. The present conditions of cooler nights and increased moisture should be ideal for mushroom proliferation. Nicole shares a few photos and will try to get a spore print today

**Aldo Dorio got photos of BLACK-BELLIED PLOVER [Pluvier argenté] on Hay Island on Monday showing few remaining remnants of their breeding plumage as they move into basic plumage. He also photographed a still sharp looking male AMERICAN REDSTART [Paruline flamboyante] warbler.

** Bob Blake keeps a rainfall record from his Second North River home. He reports he recorded a 183 mm of rain complements of Dorian in less than 24 hours at his home.
