Hello Birders,

This morning at 8:30am, I saw the Eastern and Mountain Bluebirds reported initially by Pete Chapman and most recently by Allan Woodliffe. The birds were on the corn stubble on the east side of the road 2km south of Bentpath Rd on Kerry Rd. Across the road from the Bluebirds (on the west side), there was a huge flock of Horned Larks, Snow Buntings and singles of Lapland Longspur. Two Crows and a Red tailed Hawk were seen as well. 

A few photos of these winter beauties have been posted at: http://dwaynejava.blogspot.com/2012/01/mountain-bluebird-and-other-winter.html

Good Birding!

Directions as per Allen Woodliffe: from Hwy 401, take exit 109, and head north to Thamesville 
on county road 21. Go through Thamesville, and at the north end of the 
village, take Jane Street, which turns into county road 23. Follow 
county road 23 to Lambton Line (county road 22) and turn east (right) 
for one concession to Kerry Road and then turn left (north). The birds 
were observed along Kerry Road between Bilton Line and Bentpath Line.
