Green-winged Teal (13) (Anas crecca) User: Chris  (See all photos - 1584) (Comments - 4816)
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 - 1218) (Comments - 3162)
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.

Horned Lark/Shorelark (34) (Eremophila alpestris) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1218) (Comments - 3162)
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.

Great Grey Owl (48) (Strix nebulosa) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1218) (Comments - 3162)
Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - After six failed attempts to be present when this bird showed, I was finally successful. It had a schedule which tended to be two to three days on and two to three days off and if you guessed wrong you'd be out of luck that day. Yesterday I guessed right. We worked with the bird for an hour at the end of the day. Each trip is 1 hr 45 minutes so it is a significant time commitment but with a result like this and a bird that you often have to back up from to shoot it was worth it. Onlookers have grown over the winter with up to 70 Saturday. We had about 20 yesterday.

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.

Gadwall (22) (Anas strepera) User: Chris  (See all photos - 1584) (Comments - 4816)
Canada (British Columbia) This was by far the closest I've been to a Gadwall, normally quite shy. Even some pinkish colouring appears on the head. Some shoreline brambles helped provide a blind. Thanks to the City of Richmond for doing a phenomenal job in protecting wildlife wetlands.
