After recently posting that only one Snowy Owl has shown up in York Region this
winter, here is an update: Kevin Shackleton, Henry Barnett, et. al. had two
Snowies along Ravenshoe Road in south Keswick Sunday morning while Ken Vogan and
his wife had a third bird at the west end of Bernhardt St. (it runs west from
Dufferin) in the Holland Marsh on Sunday afternoon.
Also of interest (at least locally): Despite deep freezes and snowstorms, a
Carolina Wren that first showed up at Glenn Ritchie's Aurora yard on
Halloween is still visiting his feeders three months later! Glenn's photos show
a healthy-looking bird who has - so far - survived a tough winter.
