Penny, Emi and I took a short drive into the park this afternoon. The feeders at the Visitor Centre had about 8/10 Pine Siskin and a similar number of Common Redpoll along with the more regular visitors. Emi and I walked the Cedar trail loop, seeing only 1 deer. On the way home I decided to drive 'around the block' turning right at Greenway Rd off Hwy #21 and then left up Klondyke Rd, where at the VB Gravel Pit #5 - Green # 9899 I spotted a flock of ~30 Bohemian Waxwing at the top of a tall Poplar/Aspen at 4:00 p.m. today. After turning the corner and close to Hwy#21 a second Northern Harrier in adult male plumage sailed south(we saw one earlier in the park near the causeway, where there is currently no open water and the ice is ~3 feet higher than last week.
