Raptors & Open Country - Ottawa East with Tony Beck

Thursday Feb 21, 8:00 am

Today there were Tony, Nina, Rita (a new birder), Rick, Judith, Antonia, Pavel and me. 

It was a cold blustery day with poor visibility.  We went straight to Giroux to look for the Gray Partridge, but had no luck.  The feeders at Larose Forest were very good, especially for Evening Grosbeaks and a White-winged Crossbill.

We went out to St. Isidore area where we patrolled the roads.  In spite of the poor weather, Tony somehow produced two Snowy Owls and a Rough-legged Hawk.
