Earlier this evening, my dad informed me of a rare bird sighting he viewed on BBC World.
A first for the U.K.!! An Eastern Crowned Warbler was found by a birder in a South Tyneside quarry.
Video of an interview with the birder that discovered the Asian warbler can be found on the BBC site.
And yes (to answer your question), I would drive an hour or two to observe a rare bird sighted in Ontario.
