Owls and winter birds part 4

Here is the last post from the owls and winter birds trips in early February in eastern Ontario. These are some of the highlights from around the city of Ottawa.



These Bohemian Waxwings were part of a group of about 125 which were gorging themselves on berries right beside the road allowing incredible close views. Always a bit tricky even in good winters, both groups got great views of them.

A funny male Mallard shot with my point and shoot up close for fun!
 


The Hilda Road feeders near Shirley's Bay provided incredible opportunities for viewing and studying Common and Hoary Redpolls. We had maximum counts of 300 Commons (including several Greenlands) and up to 5 Hoarys at one time.
