The Northern Mockingbird remains alive and well near Port Burwell and  
was observed today at 1:30 pm.

It is located at "Monarch Landing" about 1km east of Port Burwell on  
Lakeshore Road.  It is near the feeder area in Ron Allensen's yard at  
Monarch Landing, often found in a tangle of bittersweet.  There is a  
sign for "Monarch Landing" along the road.

It has been a recurring (permanent) visitor to this location all  
winter to date.

Port Burwell is south of Tillsonburg, Ontario and on the north shore  
of Lake Erie, about 1/2 hour west of Long Point.

In addition,

- a soaring adult bald eagle was seen about the same time.
- an immature bald eagle flew overhead minutes later.
