Sightings for Sunday February 12th

I was out with Eve Marshall around St-Clet this morning looking at Snowy Owls (Harfang des neiges) (Montee Ste-Marie, rangSte-Julie). I did a little look before she arrived and saw six, we then located at least three which gave good views, especially the last. I get the impression that the birds are on the move, I suspect that the St-Clet area is staging point as the go north, they were certainly very active today although part of that will be a response to the colder weather.

A couple of photos from today are on my blog at - Mark Dennis
St-Léon-le-Grand 621 rang Lamy: Red-headed Woodpecker (Pic à tête rouge)
