West End Birding with Always an Adventure

March 4, 2014

A new birder came out today, Lilyann, who had grown up in Argentina.  There was also a couple, Wayne & Dina who were originally from Ottawa, spend their winters in Arizona, and their summers at Groundhog Lake, west of Timmins.  They were back in Ottawa to visit a relative, and found they had some time for birding.  Other than that, it was me Tony & Nina.

We were hard pressed to get numbers of species today, but got an incredible 9 Snowy Owls and at least 5 Red-tailed Hawks.  We also saw a small flock of Horned Larks with two Lapland Longspurs among them.
