Mike saw a total of four Snowy Owls along Langstaff Line on Wednesday! As I drove home late in the day, I saw none!
This morning I saw two along Langstaff Line. One was still near the R/R tracks late today. I got this quickie shot with the G16 camera.
I drove around a bit before dark and managed to see another owl at the corner of Kimball Road and Langstaff Line. Also atop a pole, but it was getting too dark.
Yesterday, there were at least 14 Snowy Owls in Chatham-Kent's Dover Township. Mike Bouman made a concerted effort to find them. One spot had 3 owls within 3m of each other plus a fourth farther back.
Yet, he went down to Erieau area and found none! They move around a bit partly because of weather and other factors. It will be interesting to see how many stick around for a while and how many are tallied on the Christmas Bird Counts in the area.
Just in, late today 9 were seen the Erieau area (mainly Erieau Road-Lagoon Road).
In other notes, the 2 Greater White-fronted Geese were still at Blenheim yesterday. Not sure if they are still around with this freezing weather.
Quite a few Turkey Vultures have been moving through the last couple of days.
An old familiar duck made an appearance at Port Lambton this morning. Lighting was not good. I had not seen it for about 3 weeks.
