Winter Raptors - Ottawa East with Tony & Nina

Dec 5, 2013

A new young guy, Alex, joined Tony, Nina, Josh, Rick and me today.  We went out to St Isidore ,stopped and got two Snowy Owls, one on each side of the road.  We cruised around and got three more Snowys as well as huge flock of Snow Buntings.  We spotted just a couple of Lapland Longspurs and Horned Larks.  A visit to Lafleche Dump netted us large numbers of Great Black-backed and Herring Gulls.  We returned to Ottawa via Milton Road, where we had an adult Bald Eagle fly over and we saw two Rough-legged Hawks.
