Great Grey Owl (47) (Strix nebulosa) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1142) (Comments - 2742)
Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - I don't usually post multiple shots of the same species but this photo shows an interesting aspect of GGOW biology. Note the slender branch the bird is perched on and that it is barely bending.The owl weighs only about 1.1 kg which does not seem to match its very large size. This is our largest owl but the bird is a big ball of feathers. By comparison, a Snowy weighs about 2 kg. The photo was taken on a tripod after sunset on a cloudy day with little light left. Very slow shutter speed.

Canada (Ontario) Ottawa- In flight this bird has a huge wingspan. This is the same bird as the other photo but taken later in the day so the plumage appears darker and browner.

Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - Based on size I think this was a male. Several birds have been seen this winter.

Horned Lark/Shorelark (34) (Eremophila alpestris) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1142) (Comments - 2742)
Canada (Ontario) Ingleside - As a followup to my January post of the northern subspecies of Horned Lark that overwinters here, this is the Prairie subspecies that has been migrating through for the last couple of weeks. Many of us consider this our first spring bird because it usually is. Note the white rather than yellow above the eye.

Barred Owl (23) (Strix varia) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1142) (Comments - 2742)
Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - my guess at it being a male was based on size. Good number of birds this winter. There were three along this road within 2 km.

Common Redpoll (35) (Carduelis flammea) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1142) (Comments - 2742)
Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - The interesting thing about this bird is the noticeable eyering. Usually when present it is indistinct but this one stands out. Very good number of redpolls coming to feeders now.

Northern Shrike (16) (Lanius excubitor) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1142) (Comments - 2742)
Canada (Ontario) Ingleside - This is the third bird I've found this winter (I forgot about the Quebec bird). Getting photos of this species is very tough because of the frequency of observation, their small size and their tendency to perch high in a tree. I heard today about one coming to a suet feeder not far from Algonquin Park. That would be the way to do it.

American Robin (67) (Turdus migratorius) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1142) (Comments - 2742)
Canada (Ontario) Ingleside - I thought this might put us in a more spring-like mood. This was one of a small flock of overwintering birds. A month from now I would consider them early migrants.

Common Redpoll (35) (Carduelis flammea) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1142) (Comments - 2742)
Canada (Ontario) Cornwall - Redpolls have been along roadsides feeding in weeds since December but it was only recently that they headed to feeders when heavy snow arrived. Update:. Christmas bird counts in Eastern Ontario did well with redpolls. Several had record numbers with the highest being over 750. Some feeders in the region are now seeing 30-75 birds coming in regularly.

Snowy Owl (208) (Nyctea scandiaca) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1142) (Comments - 2742)
Canada (Ontario) St. Rose - We have half a dozen birds about 40 minutes from me which is a smaller number than the last few years but appreciated nevertheless. This was a 'pole bird' that didn't mind our presence. As a rule I don't take many pole shots but the light was great and it was very cooperative. I shot from the window and moved on after a minute. Update: Some owl stats. Christmas count data indicated that the flight this year was larger than I expected. Nearly 190 birds were counted in Ontario with about 40% in the east. Some stayed and others moved into the U.S. until spring.

Pine Siskin (18) (Carduelis pinus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1142) (Comments - 2742)
Canada (Ontario) Cornwall - Most siskins left the province last fall so a small flock at a local feeder was a pleasant surprise.

Black-capped Chickadee (62) (Parus atricapillus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1142) (Comments - 2742)
Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - I don't take many pictures of Chickadees but when I spotted this guy I got a few shots off very quickly before it moved on. Leucism has altered not only the head colouring but the side feathers are paler and note the foot colour. It should be black.
