Ottawa East - Frank Kenny and East to St. Isidore

Jan 27 2010

(text by Connie)
Here is the list of birds we had for today. We spent so long looking for the Snowy Owl, that my eyes were starting to get sore! Thanks to Janet for finally spotting one and encouraging us to look at the suspected form more closely. We saw both Red-tailed and Rough-legged Hawks today, but in all the driving around there were no snow buntings. Even feeders (with seed) seemed to be lacking in birds and there weren't even any House Sparrows at the Casselman Tim Hortons!
Still a good day for birding.
