February 22 & 24
We passed through
both going to and coming from
our ski trip with friends Rich & Lorna at Huntsville/Arrowhead Park. Algonquin
On the way there, we stopped at the Visitor Centre parking lot feeder where we saw lots of Blue Jays and a few fleeting glimpses of Evening Grosbeaks. Across the road at the Spruce Bog parking lot, we also saw a Gray Jay and a few of the usual suspects. Further along the highway, we were entertained by a Ruffed Grouse crossing the road.
On the way home, the Visitor Centre area was more productive. We saw many Evening Grosbeaks and both Red and White-winged Crossbills on the access road.
The snow started at Barry's Bay, but was never an issue for us. We even had time to stop at
to photograph two Bald Eagles,
one a full adult and the other perhaps a two-year old bird. Wilber
