A slightly tardy report from this weekend.
We headed up to Ile Bizard and had some wonderful views of the great greys.
It's amazing how fearless they are. At one point, one of the owls landed on a
birder's scope while she was bending over. When she stood up the owl flew off
slightly bothered, while she was scared white. With so many owls in such a
small space I wonder how they still find food. By now I would have expected
that they had cleaned out the fridge and forced to order takeout. Here are a
We also tried to find the Hawk Owl but ultimately couldn't find the location.
Does anybody have detailed directions?
At our feeder on Killington Mountain, we have 50-60 redpolls. The flock has
been slowly building up over the winter.
This winter has also been a treat with three titmice (titmouses?). This is
the first time we have ever had them.
At night, we usually get flying squirrels on our peanut feeder, but in full
daylight at 7:30 am we had one on the feeder. I wonder if she was expecting.
Finally on Rt 4 out of Rutland there was a Barred Owl on the side of the
highway perched out in the open. At first I assumed it was a Red Tail because
of the location. I wonder if food is getting scarce.
