At Presqu'ile provincial park, roughly
40 km to the south, the
flicker is a common migrant and summer resident.
Spring migration typically occurs from late March to mid-May,
with fall migration from mid-August to late October.
Small numbers of individuals have been found overwintering
at the park
(LaForest, 1993, pp.230-231).
In Peterborough county, to the northwest, the bird
is a common summer resident, and a rare winter species,
with most arrivals in late March to early April
and departure as late as 15 October
(Sadler, 1983, pp.104-105).
