Sightings for Wednesday February 22nd

There are still 2 Snowy Owls (harfangs des neiges) in the St-Clet area. The easiest to find is a male which I see in the same spot on most recent visits. Off the 201 going north from St-Clet take Ste-Julie. At the end go right and continue 100m to the first ditch on the right. The bird favours the lump of snow in the corner of the field to the left of the road where the fence ends. The snow is rapidly disappearing and I expect that they will all be off to pastures white pretty soon. - Mark Dennis
Stanbridge Station, 261 rang Dupuis: Varied thrush (Grive à collier) - Jean-Guy Papineau
Mirabel: rang St Dominic - more than a hundred Snow buntings, a dozen Horned larks and four beautiful Gray partridge on the roadside.

rang Ste-Marie - I saw a female Snowy owl in the middle of the field looking towards Highway 15. Few dozen Snow buntings, ten Horned larks and again four beautiful Gray partridge beside the road.

rang St-Dominique: plus d'une centaine de plectrophanes des neiges, une douzaine d'alouettes hausse-col et 4 belles perdrix grises sur le bord de la route.
rang Ste-Marie: j'ai aperçu un harfang des neiges femelle dans le milieu du champ en regardant vers l'autoroute 15. Quelques dizaines de plectrophanes des neiges, une dizaine d'alouettes hausse-col et encore 4 belles perdrix  grises sur le bord du rang. - Michel Juteau
