Snow Geese! I had these 2 adults, and 1 blue morph while out and about.....
And Turkey Vultures! I think there is 52 in this photo. Not a bad count for January, right?
--- Other than that, it was a pretty slow news week involving birds for me..... Ended up with 37 species for the new year. So it's time to go to the old stand by for blog material:
= Here's some fun things I've found on the internet recently:
Hybrid Carolina Chickadee X Tufted Titmouse -- pretty cool stuff:
Awesome photo of a hybrid Pintail X Mallard:
Pink-footed Goose in CT (will someday grace Ontario):
Slaty-backed Gull in NF (by Bruce MacT):
They've had SBGU's every winter for 7 years in a row now.
This "week" in Ontario birding history:
Northern Fulmar - Jan 5, 2000 - Aurora
Fieldfare - Jan 8, 1967 - Ottawa
--- It's unfortunate but true, we are stuck in a period historically good for Tufted Ducks, Ivory Gulls and Great Cormorants till the end of the month (that's it) ... at the earliest.
