Eastern Ontario highlights

Im making this brief cause I'm typing on my phone making use of the free wifi at McDonald's. A full report with photos will be up tonight!

I spent the last two days birding eastern Ontario with Andrew Keaveney. We missed the Varied Thrush yesterday but got most of our other target birds in Ottawa including:

Gray Partridge (Kanata)
Barrow's Goldeneye (female at Bate's Island)
both Crossbills (Larose Forest)

Today we went to Amherst Island. Highlights:

Northern Saw-whet Owl
3 Snowy Owls (9 already for the year)
Northern Goshawk (adult)

This brings my year list up to 89. My first visit to Niagara for the year will be tomorrow and I hope to hit 100. Hopefully the Black Vultures fly over the river so I can count them.
