Snowy Owl (211) (Nyctea scandiaca) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1392) (Comments - 3764)
Canada (Ontario) Ottawa- This was a bizarre scene. The Raven stood right beside the owl but did not attack it. It called a few times, walked circles around it and would stand right in front of it, inches away from the Snowy's face. The Raven eventually flew off. The owl didn't give up any ground. The Raven is spotted in snow making it look like it is snowing.

Grey Partridge (10) (Perdix perdix) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1392) (Comments - 3764)
Canada (Ontario) These are tough birds to find because there are not many. Winter is the best chance to look for them.

Red-tailed Hawk (68) (Buteo jamaicensis) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1392) (Comments - 3764)
Canada (Ontario) Kingston - This is a leucistic bird with nearly pure white feathering. There is some pale beige on the underwing and under the tail but otherwise, to the untrained eye, this looks like either a white morph Gyrfalcon or a Snowy Owl. It is not a local bird, only moving into the area a few weeks ago.

Eastern Screech Owl (18) (Otus asio) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1392) (Comments - 3764)
Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - If you check the photo I posted the other day, you will notice that this red morph is in the same hole. Apparently this morning the gray was in the hole and the red came by and the gray flew out, surrendering the hole to this bird. Could they be a pair? Yes that's possible. This is not nesting season but they could be paired up. Only 10% of the population is red and in the Eastern part of the province they are fairly rare. I just did a comparison with the other photo and aside from the gray bird being fluffed up to keep warm, it is standing a bit taller on what is presumably the same perch as the red morph. Female raptors are larger than males. The colour has nothing to do with the bird's sex.

Rock Wren (6) (Salpinctes obsoletus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1392) (Comments - 3764)
Canada (Ontario) This is a rare wanderer from the West that was discovered inside a farm building. The shot was taken inside from 4 metres with the window as a backdrop. The bird had the right idea because it is a large heated structure with lots of windows that it checks for anything moving, like flies and spiders. We discovered that it gets in and out through a pet access door that has vertical plastic strips which can be easily pushed to the side. Smart bird. It may survive the winter.

Common Redpoll (41) (Carduelis flammea) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1392) (Comments - 3764)
Canada (Ontario) Ingleside - This is the subspecies Greater Common Redpoll. The bird is a little larger, with heavier streaking on the underparts, browner above, more black in front of the eye and heavier bill. The bird breeds on Baffin Island and Greenland and appears in small numbers during major redpoll eruptions like the one we are enjoying this winter.

Common Redpoll (41) (Carduelis flammea) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1392) (Comments - 3764)
Canada (Ontario) Cornwall - There has been a very strong southward movement of redpolls this winter. Thousands of birds have been in weedy fields and scrubby roadsides since early December but are now appearing at feeders, occasionally in large numbers.
