Just as EVENING GROSBEAKS and northern finches are showing up is good numbers in southern Ontario, so are northern Owls.  SAW-WHET OWLS have been seen and large numbers have been banded this year at Long Point.  Even a BOREAL OWL was banded there this fall.  At least two SNOWY OWLS have been reported in the south already.  A NORTHERN HAWK OWL was seen on the Bruce Penninsula.  So keep your eyes open.  One just may turn up in your neck of the woods.

    I saw Evening Grosbeacks and a shrike Sunday in the Pinery at the visitors centre and Saw -whet owl in Perch Creek management area Sunday morning, Bald eagles and Brants and snow goose at Kettle point on the beach. A great birding day!

    I’ll look for them. Last Thurs. while working at the McKinlay-Paul park in Strathroy, 4 of us first heard and then saw two flocks of sandhill cranes heading southwest. A definite first for me.
