Is anyone else dying to see photos of this Empid Sp at Pelee? Any hints? Was it green/yellow? Was it gray? Was it cosmic?!
My recent bird news:
Snowy Owl (at night!) - a few days ago at the Tollgate Ponds:
Back in the day, I would have put something like this on ontbirds! ;) --- http://ontbirds.ca/pipermail/birdalert_ontbirds.ca/2002-February/000376.html

As you can see, it has been pretty slow... Maybe that will change! I hope to get a short morning watch in - pretty regularly - over the next little while...
Minima CACG and ROGO chillin in MD? -
Yesterday California had a good blast of rain - which will hopefully help their crazy drought...
As for birdy weather - not much... The chance for a big east coast snowstorm in the next 6-10 days, but it may not effect us here in Ontario much at all...
I'm seeing a lot of N and E winds in the forecast over the next week, but that will probably change..
Wait and see!
ICE ICE BABY!!!!!!
Some of the great lakes have had special ice warnings already this year. Here's hoping for another record year! http://weather.gc.ca/marine/forecast_e.html?mapID=11&siteID=08400
(No big deal)
On the other hand, NOAA is showing MASSIVE ice cover on Hudson Bay already... Maybe it's weak, but that is HUGE! Maybe we will notice some changes in our bird life if it caps over early this year? Or maybe not?
I think that's all I've got for now!
