Date: Wednesday, March 6, 2019
Timeframe: 9:00 AM to 1:30 PM
Weather: Cold and wintry! Strong NW wind. High pressure system; bluebird sky with fluffy white clouds…but…-20-something with the windchill! Nice to have a warm vehicle to duck into in between bouts of looking at (or for) birds.
A nice wintry outing with Eastern Ontario Birding friends! We observed a lovely array of winter birds, including some regional specialties, such as: Barrow’s Goldeneye, Gray Partridge, Great Horned Owl on a nest, Bohemian Waxwing, Pileated Woodpecker, Red-tailed Hawk, Common Redpoll, Snow Bunting and more! Please see the eBird checklists below for more details.
