Eight birders including a visitor from Belgium, started at rue Higgins in Chateauguay. Temperature  -13 C, but at least there not much wind. One of the the first birds found was a Carolina wren in full song, and everyone a good view as it was very co-operative. Fifteen species were found before five of us moved on to Sainte-Catherine. where we added another seven species for a total of 22. As we were going back to our cars Mary Ellen found a Northern pintail mixed in with the Mallards that were behind the fence at the parking lot.  - Tom
