Canada (Ontario) Williamsburg - This is the northern subspecies, a few of which overwinter in the region. Spring migrants will arrive in a little over a month.

Evening Grosbeak (12) (Hesperiphona vespertina) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1127) (Comments - 2718)
Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - I spent a couple of hours on a cold winter morning trying to get shots of a flock near a feeder on a public trail. Numerous branches obscured the birds most of the time but patience delivered in the end.

Trumpeter Swan (18) (Cygnus buccinator) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1127) (Comments - 2718)
Canada (Ontario) Toronto - Ontario's Trumpeter Swans, introduced a few decades ago, winter largely on Lake Ontario between Toronto and Hamilton. They are a familiar sight along the waterfront in the winter.

American Tree Sparrow (18) (Spizella arborea) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1127) (Comments - 2718)
Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - Last month I posted a picture of a Tree Sparrow but I couldn't confirm until now that the number of winter visitors this year are way down from what we can expect. With Christmas bird counts almost complete for another year, results are showing low to record low numbers across Ontario. I'm not sure why that is. It doesn't suggest that there is anything disastrous happening with the species but it is a curiosity. We'll see this time next year if the numbers return to normal.

Common Goldeneye (23) (Bucephala clangula) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1127) (Comments - 2718)
Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - In winter, in a year when subjects can be hard to find, you take what you can get. What you can't see is the degree of difficulty shooting down on the subject from a pedestrian bridge where the railing interferes with the lens (on tripod) on a brisk winter afternoon at -14C.

Pileated Woodpecker (101) (Dryocopus pileatus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1127) (Comments - 2718)
Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - There is good news on the woodpecker front. All of the southern species in Ontario are showing an upward trend in their populations. This includes the Pileated which is experiencing record highs on Christmas counts in many areas. My take on this, and I was expecting it, is that it is related to the decimation of native ash trees due to the emerald ash borer. Almost 10% of the tree population in the southern part of the province is ash. The white ash will be almost wiped out in the next very few years as the onslaught continues. The species is virtually gone in the south.

Canada (Ontario) Williamsburg - I went looking for a Barred that a friend had told me about the day before. After some looking I spotted it enjoying some late day sun.

Snowy Owl (207) (Nyctea scandiaca) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1127) (Comments - 2718)
Canada (Ontario) Kingston - Wolfe Island. We couldn't pass up this beauty. The number of male Snowies compared to females in the winter is low so any time a male is present it is cause for rejoicing. This bird was incredibly tolerant. We shot from the car across the road and the bird didn't pay us much attention. We could only shoot in vertical format. It was too close :) The dull gray sky offered a perfect contrast for our subject.
