Hi Everyone
The Northern Hawk-Owl continues to hunt along Grandview Road off Carling Ave. There were a few small flocks of both Pine Siskin and White-winged Crossbills feeding in the spruce and cedar trees along Grandview. At the corner of Rifle Road and Carling Ave a Northern Shrike was observed along with 1 dark morph Rough-legged Hawk and 200+ Snow Bunting. In the Woodroffe Ave/Iris St. area 150+ White-winged Crossbills were observed feeding in the neighborhood spruce trees. Along Moodie Drive near Carling Ave., there was a flock of 150+ Bohemian Waxwing. A stop at the Trail Road Landfill Site off Moodie Drive near Cambrian Road produced 16 Glaucous and 7 Iceland Gulls along with 150+ Great Black-Backed and 70 Herring Gull. 
Good birding, Bruce
