A Pied-billed Grebe was seen today by Dave Martin,Linda Wladarski,Ross  
Snider and myself,along the Lawson Trail in Ingersoll.
 
It was seen at the west end of the trail,where the trail turns away from  the 
river.This same bird was originally seen on the Ingersoll CBC,on Dec  28.
 
The record is notable since it is only Oxford County's 2nd January record  of 
PB Grebe.
 
The same area has hosted 4 White-winged Crossbills for several  
weeks.They[may] be found anywhere within the conifer block,west of the start of  the 
trail.Look for Spruce with a lot of cones or listen for the birds,they are  very 
vocal.
 
Directions-From Thames Street go west on King St. about .5km.Turn North  just 
before the miniature golf course and park at the gates.
