Ontbirders,
 
For the winter listers, there was a Vesper Sparrow along Queen Street East, just east of Beachville today.  The bird was feeding along the road edge, just past the slight s bend, near the entrance to the Thames Trail. This species is ridiculously rare in winter for Oxford Co., with this my 1st ever in January.
 
Also along this stretch [feeding on Hackberry] were Northern Mockingbird, Eastern Bluebird, numerous Cedar Waxwing and Am. Robin.
 
Directions - from Beachville Road, take Zorra Line north .5 km, turn right [east] onto Queen St. E., proceed .75 km to the slight bend. Note - although called a street, this stretch of road is gravel and known as ''Skyview Drive'' by the locals.
 
Cheers,
