Green-winged Teal (13) (Anas crecca) User: Chris  (See all photos - 1579) (Comments - 4710)
Canada (British Columbia) Thanks to the City of Richmond, Ducks Unlimited Canada and Environment Canada. A little snip-it from the billboard at the Terra Nova Natural Area: 35 acre site, once farmland, has lain fallow for 20 years. Goal to preserve old field and grassland habitat and providing a diversity of plantings for the benefit of many bird species. 80 species use the habitats with the Terra Nova Park, adjacent to the Sturgeon Banks.

Great Grey Owl (48) (Strix nebulosa) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1194) (Comments - 3032)
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.

Pine Siskin (18) (Carduelis pinus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1194) (Comments - 3032)
Canada (Ontario) Cornwall - Most siskins left the province last fall so a small flock at a local feeder was a pleasant surprise.

Snowy Owl (208) (Nyctea scandiaca) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1194) (Comments - 3032)
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.

American Tree Sparrow (18) (Spizella arborea) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1194) (Comments - 3032)
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.

Tennessee Warbler (11) (Vermivora peregrina) User: Sue  (See all photos - 3350) (Comments - 2944)
Canada (Ontario) I find this bird hard to photograph in Canada. It was much easier in it's wintering grounds in Panama where it was very common. Taken at Long Point Provincial Park

Snowy Owl (208) (Nyctea scandiaca) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1194) (Comments - 3032)
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.

Horned Lark/Shorelark (34) (Eremophila alpestris) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1194) (Comments - 3032)
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.

Common Redpoll (35) (Carduelis flammea) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1194) (Comments - 3032)
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.

Northern Hawk-Owl (7) (Surnia ulula) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1194) (Comments - 3032)
Canada (Qu├ębec) Sherbrooke - We spent the day with the bird and in this shot it had retrieved a cached vole from an 8 ft. high stump. We didn't know it was there. We were just shooting the bird when it retrieved it from below. Imagine the surprise.
