Sightings for Wednesday January 2nd

Ste.Marthe: There was an adult male Snowy Owl (Harfang des neiges) on a pole in Ste.Marthe which got scared away by snowmobiles and we saw the immature along chemin Ste-Julie, northwest of St-Clet - S. Bishop click photo to enlarge

St-Clet: This morning a young, male, Snowy Owl (Harfang des neiges) was on a barn roof ridge along chemin Ste-Julie, northwest of St-Clet. This is the first one I have seen along the road this winter, unlike last winter when there were a number. It does sound like there are a few to be found in the larger area west of St-Clet. There were also 100+ Snow Buntings (Bruants des neiges) and a dozen or so Horned Larks (Alouettes hausse-col) along the road – L. Laviolette

Châteauguay, rue Higgins: 13 species including - Tufted titmouse (mésange bicolore), Red-bellied woodpecker (pic à ventre roux), Coopers hawk (épervier de cooper), American kestrel (crécerelle d'amérique), 9 Common redpoll (sizerin flammé)Simon Chaloux
rue Flanagan: Coopers hawk (épervier de cooper) came by our feeders twice. The second time it went after a Mourning Dove (tourterelle triste) when it took off from where it was sitting. Don’t know if it got away or not – T. Long
