December 5, 2010 Bohemian Waxwings and Common Redpolls

Bohemian Waxwings continue to move through/around eastern Ontario. Today I observed a flock of 35+ near Perth and yesterday there were 100+ near the corner of Carling Ave. and Moodie Drive feeding in a crabapple tree. Also, had a flock of 40+ in Almonte and two small flocks of Common Redpoll, 3 and 5 near Kanata, my first this fall. At Westport today there were 5 Bald Eagle and 1800+ Common Merganser on the Upper Rideau Lake. If you require additional information, please email me privately. Good Birding, Bruce

The Bohemian Waxwing is a erratic visitor to eastern Ontario during the late fall and winter months.

The Bald Eagle is a regular sight on the Rideau Lakes during freeze up as they search for food.

Wild Turkey can be found in most areas in eastern Ontario.

That's quite the flock of Common Mergansers!

Today (December 9) I just had my first Common Redpolls of the year, a flock of around 12 in Kanata.
