One wonders how long it will stay! It will probably feel at home today.
The temperature dropped and the wind picked up today, so early arrivals will have to deal with some weather.
Waterfowl has been coming through as we would expect this time of year. Ducks are hanging out in the Stewart Wetland including the Gadwall and most recently a pair of American Wigeon. It was snowing heavily after I left work today so visibility was poor.
This morning a Snowy Owl was perched atop a hydro pole--the first one I have seen along the Langstaff Line in over a month. I found it again (on the ground) after work when I stopped to look at several hundred Tundra Swans in a field.
I was actually one concession south on Stewart Line when I noticed the swans. I estimated around 750--quite a number for the location and date.
