Hello Ontbirders

An adult male Snowy Owl was observed this morning, in a field along Earl
Armstrong Road. The bird was hunkered in a dirt field southwest of the "S"
curve (near Bowesville Rd.).

Other birds of interest today include an adult Bald Eagle flying west over
Fallowfield Road. And, this evening, a Northern Shrike chasing an
unidentified passerine over Dick Bell Park.
