Lachute: I checked out the landfill near Lachute today. I saw 40 Glaucous gulls (40 goélands bourgmestres)   and seven Iceland Gulls (goélands articque) amongst the more common species. To view the fields where they loaf take the first exit for Lachute off Highway 50, go back over the highway onto Chemin Bethany. After a short while this becomes Chemin Charles-Leonard, look out for a crossroads that is Chemin Des Sources, go south for a couple of kilometers and the landfill appears on your left, keep going down the hill to view the fields, a scope is useful.

At Mirabel there was one Snowy Owl (Harfang des neiges) and four Gray Partridges (Perdrix grises) plus 100 or more Snow Buntings (plectophanes des neiges). I also saw three different Northern Gray Shrikes (Pie-grièche grise) today so they are probably on the move back north. - Mark Dennis
