>
> Germain Savard and Claudette Cormier report a huge irruption of  
> Boreal Chickadee is occurring at Saint-Fulgence (N48 26 33 W70 52  
> 42) in Quebec. Germain and Claudette report that "Today, October  
> 8th, no less than 2403 Boreal Chickadees passed in front of our  
> house for a grand total of 12,957 this autumn and the migration is  
> not finished yet!" The chickadees are going from east to west  
> streaming on the north side of the Saguenay River. They report that  
> the chickadees don't like to fly over large bodies of water.
>
> Saint-Fulgence is about 215 km north of Quebec City on the north  
> shore of the Saguenay River about half way between Tadoussac and  
> Lac Saint-Jean. There have been no reports of Boreal Chickadees  
> moving in Ontario, but the magnitude of the Quebec irruption  
> suggests that it will spill over into southern Ontario and probably  
> into bordering states.
