OFO's Easter weekend trip to see and hear Sharp-tailed Grouse on Manitoulin
Island was a great success. There were about 60 grouse displaying on the
lek at Gore Bay. Everyone got close views from the hide.
Other sightings were an adult Ross's Goose, a pale "Snyder's" Great Horned
Owl on the same nest as last year, many Sandhill Cranes, several
Short-eared Owls, three Bald Eagle nests, dark and light morph Rough-legged
Hawks, many male Northern Harriers, and displaying American Woodcock and
We thank Steve and Rita Hall, Roy Campbell and the Friends of Misery Bay
for showing us the Sharp-tailed Grouse and for their outstanding hospitality.
