Hi, everyone,

"Our" overwintering Eastern Towhee is still showing well at Arboretum Centre feeder at The Arboretum, University of Guelph (same spot as the wintering Brown Thrasher from a couple of years ago).  He usually pops out of the bittersweet after a patient wait.

Here are some photos from yesterday if you are interested:  https://www.flickr.com/photos/52649814@N05/32804511452/in/dateposted-public/

Cheers, Chris Earley    p.s. Happy Family Day!

Directions:  From the 401, take hwy 6 north to Guelph.  Turn right onto College Avenue.  Just before College Ave ends at Victoria, turn right into The Arboretum (our sign was hit by a car and is currently being repaired, but it is the last right turn before you hit Victoria Road).  Follow the road to the two large parking lots on your left (not the first little parking lot on your left).  Following the paved walkway opposite the parking lot entrance towards The Arboretum Centre and you will come to the feeder.
