Due to technical difficulties this message did not make it through last
night so I am resending.

At 4:00 p.m. yesterday, Sunday 19th, in howling winds and a snow squall, I
found the Snowy Owl sitting in the highest cormorant's nest at the back of
Tollgate Ponds.  The bird was actually visible from the QEW and could be
easily viewed from Eastport Drive.  Access to Eastport Drive has to be made
through Woodward Ave over the skyway bridge as the lift bridge is currently
closed.  Hopefully the bird will be relocated in the same vicinity for those
wishing to go out.

Good Birding


QEW Niagara to Woodward Ave.  Continue right off the ramp and follow signs
to Eastport Drive.  Continue on Eastport back toward the bay until you see
Tollgate Ponds on your left.  The bird was at the back of the largest pond
but has been spotted on the ground at Pier 26 which is just beside it.
