Area updates


In keeping with my goal of keeping area birders informed of birds of interest in the area, I have TWO owls for your awareness.  A Snowy Owl was seen today in the field northeast of the Seed Road and Egremont intersection.  It is heavily barred.  And yesterday I located a Short-eared Owl on Hyndman Road south of Melbourne.  Here is a picture I took.

    Awesome picture! I live on Cuddy Drive and this morning my husband opened the front door to let the dogs out, and 8 short eared owls flew out of our spruce trees. When we moved here, we had at least that many in our hedge row and hanging about. Haven’t seem then for the last 3 years, and we are delighted that they have returned! Needless to say, I may leave the chickens in the coop today!!!

    Wow! What a dramatic pic. I read in Cdn. Geo. that most snowys (young) forced to come this far south for survival never make it back.
