December 14,2011 Rufous Hummingbird and Snowy Owls .

The Rufous Hummingbird is still doing well and regularly visiting the Peterson's hummingbird feeder in Eganville. With a mild November and December so far, I'm sure there are other late lingering species in eastern Ontario. Numerous Christmas Bird Count start this weekend and it will be interesting to see what is found.  The forecast for the end of week is cold overnight, -10c, but no snow. Feeder watchers should have there feeders up and ready for the weekend. Anything is possible and have your camera ready!

The number of Snowy Owl sightings continue to rise throughout eastern Ontario. Numerous individuals  are being reported along rivers and lakes where they hunt water birds at dusk, mainly ducks and some gulls.      

With no snow cover these days, the Snowy Owl stands out  against the landscape.

They are a beautiful owl for sure but my favourite is still the barn owl.
