Birding Algonquin Park today with Dan Salisbury (Tues. Jan. 20) produced
a few interesting birds, (and failed to produce 2 or 3 others which
might have been expected).
Black-backed woodpecker (1 male). South side of # 60 opposite Bat Lake
Trail (Km 30). Working a dead white pine just off the road.
Bohemian waxwing (1), perched at the top of a tall tree near Km 9.
Northern shrike (1). Opeongo Rd.
Grey jay (5). 2 Opeongo Rd., 3 Spruce Bog Trail.
Pine grosbeak (3). 2 locations.
Common redpoll (50). several locations.
Hoary redpoll (1) with Common redpolls, at Visitor's centre feeder.
White-winged crossbill (40). 4 different locations, largest flock 20
We looked for the Northern hawk owl near Bracebridge, without success. I
note that the last posting was Jan.10, (which of course doesn't prove
that the bird is gone).
