Ottawa Area: Red-shouldered Hawk, Bohemian Waxwing, White-winged Crossbill

Today, January 2nd, I observed a Red-shouldered Hawk near the corner of Huntmar and Old Carp Road. It was sitting in a tree watching over an active feeder. This is the same location a Red-shouldered Hawk over wintered last year.

There were a few flocks of Bohemian Waxwings, 40+ at Huntmar & Old Carp road and 150+ near Carling and Hertzberg Road.

White-winged Crossbills are moving around in good numbers, there were 200+ in the Antrim/Kinburn area, small flocks in Carp area plus 400+ in the Calabogie area.

Good birding,
