Hi Everyone
Lots of owl activity this morning west of Ottawa.  There was a Great Gray Owl near the corner of Vance's Side Road and 6th Line Road. The owl was sitting in a tree beside a house. The Northern Hawk-Owl was still present off Grandview Road at 11:45am, feeding on a kill. The Boreal Owl was also still present along March Valley Road at 12:15pm. It still had a small rodent in its talons that it had caught earlier.  There was a small flock of Bohemian Waxwings feeding along Hilda Road and lots of Pine Siskin, a few Common Redpoll and a flock of White-winged Crossbills were also present. Please review OFO's Ethical Birding Principles

Good birding, Bruce
