Saturday, January 19: Come out and enjoy a winter birding day in an area you’ve yet to explore. Today we will be covering ground by car, visiting sites in Frontenac and Lennox & Addington counties, beginning our day in the rugged country north of Sharbot Lake. Black-backed Woodpecker, Red Crossbill, White-winged Crossbill, redpolls, Northern Shrike, Northern Goshawk and even a northern owl or two are possibilities today 🙂
