This is Chris Lewis reporting.

Birds reported this past week include a Short-eared Owl on February 11, 
north of
Russell, at the intersection of Route 200 and Eddy Street, an immature Golden
Eagle on February 9 along the Eardley-Masham Rd, north of Luskville Quebec, and
a HOARY REDPOLL, also in Quebec, in the area of Val des Mont/Perkins at 121
chemin Blackburn, approximately 6 km north of Perkins.  The Hoary is visiting a
feeder in front yard of this address - birders are welcome but it is 
that you park on the street and walk up the laneway.

A new Caroline Wren report comes from today at 73 Amberwood Cres, off Prince of
Wales, south of Hunt Club Rd.  This bird has been visiting the backyard feeders
for the past 3-4 days, usually in the early afternoon.  Birders are welcome to
view the feeders from the right side of the house, next to the garage.

GRAY PARTRIDGES were seen at 20 Barnsdale Rd in the Greenbank and Fallowfield
area today and a Pileated Woodpecker was seen in downtown Ottawa today, as on
previous occasions earlier this winter.

The TUFTED TITMOUSE continues to visit the feeders at numbers 13 and 14 in the
trailer park at 5620 Rockdale Rd in Vars, and for those still pining for a 
Grackle for the winter list, one was seen on February 13 at 2 Rastila Cres, 
of Albion Rd.  This bird has been occasionally visiting the backyard feeders
since December.

the club and its activities, please call 722-3050 or visit

Thank you, good birding.
