Sightings for Friday March 11

Montréal, Parc Nature Cap St. Jacques

A large mixed flock of both Bohemian Waxwings / Jaseur boréal and Cedar Waxwings / Jaseur d'Amérique, composed of very close to half one species and half the other, in trees and hedges approximately 300 metres from the park entrance. Very interesting behaviour was noted: many of the Bohemians were wading in pools of meltwater, up to and beyond the depth of their bellies; none of the Cedars were doing this.
6 Americn Robins / Merles d'Amérique were seen associating with these birds, as well as an undetermined number of Black-capped Chickadees / Mésanges à tête noire. Also seen was 1 Red-bellied Woodpecker / Pic à ventre roux. - Ian and Eleanor Turner
