Sightings for Thursday February 26th

Sainte-Brigide, 11ième rang: 2 Short-eared owls about 200m from the intersection of chemins Lebeau & Delorme. Coming from Montreal the best way to get there is to follow the signs for Parachutisme Nouvel Air

There are still plenty of Snowy Owls (Harfang des neiges) in the St-Clet area. I saw four(probably three young birds and one adult female) close to the road this morning around 8am on Chemin Saint-Julie and points west towards St-Justine-de-Newton. I've been seeing 1-2 most mornings this week. Whether they disperse again with the coming the milder weather is still to be seen.
There were also about 40 Horned Larks (Alouette hausse-col) along the same stretch. They are mostly in small groups of 6-8.- Lance

Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue: Red-bellied Woodpecker (Pic à ventre roux) heard calling at the Morgan Arboretum this morning - Betsy
