Kingston Field Naturalists (KFN) maintains records in a 50km radius of
MacDonald Park, Kingston. Birders using eBird are encouraged to share their
sightings with 'Kingston FN'. Alternatively, please email or post records

Highlights:

Other than the cold snap last weekend, there has been no real change in the
weather. Likewise, no major highlights so just a quick reminder that the Owl
Woods (Amherst Island) are currently closed for hunting (20th Nov - 10th
Dec). Here are the brief highlights of the last week:

 

BRANT - a single bird was seen at Button Bay, Wolfe Island on 22nd.

KING EIDER - somewhat out of the area, an immature male was cooperative at
Wellington, Prince Edward County 19th-21st.

RED-THROATED LOON - 2 sightings this week; Bear Creek on 20th and Howe
Island on 22nd where an impressive continuing count of 152 COMMON LOON was
also tallied.

ICELAND GULL - the first returning bird of the season was seen at Heritage
Point, Bath on 20th.

SNOWY OWL - still scarce in these parts, 2 were seen on Amherst Island this
week with 1-2 also on Wolfe Island.

NORTHERN MOCKINGBIRD - 2 continuing birds were seen on Amherst Island on
23rd.

WHITE-WINGED CROSSBILL - a single bird was noted near Verona on 23rd.

 

In order to minimise disturbance to wildlife and property in the recording
area, Kingston Field Naturalists has adopted the KFN Sensitive Sightings
Policy
<http://kingstonfieldnaturalists.org/birding/KFN_sensitive_sightings_policy.
pdf> . Please note that you must be a member of Kingston Field Naturalists
(KFN) or be accompanied by a member to access the Martin Edwards Reserve.

 

As always, a big thank you goes to all those who have submitted sightings
directly or via eBird.

 

Mark.
