Short-eared Owl (19) (Asio flammeus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1408) (Comments - 3798)
Canada (Ontario) Amherst Island (Kingston area) - I was pleasantly surprised to find nearly a dozen Short-eareds cruising a couple of favourite areas. There was a good number during the winter but a few could remain to breed. I had a couple of them close by while I was watching the Say's Phoebe.

Say's Phoebe (9) (Sayornis saya) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1408) (Comments - 3798)
Canada (Ontario) Amherst Island (Kingston area) - I returned this afternoon to check on this Western rarity and after three tries at locating it I had success. This species likes to hunt from low perches like fences and drop to the ground. At one point it got very close to my car.

Say's Phoebe (9) (Sayornis saya) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1408) (Comments - 3798)
Canada (Ontario) Amherst Island (Kingston area) - This bird just showed up yesterday and I was determined to try for it having missed others in Ontario over the years. A Western species, one shows up every few years somewhere but it was always too far. This one was within reach. Morning light was against me today so it was over an hour before I managed to get anything worthwhile and this, part of a sequence three hours later, was when I said goodbye. By the way, identified as male because it sang.

Willow Ptarmigan (4) (Lagopus lagopus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1408) (Comments - 3798)
Canada (Québec) Val-d'Or – I was going through some of my trip files from northern Quebec earlier this month and recall the conditions when we found the ptarmigan. It was rough, a far cry from where we are today thankfully. Discovering a flock close to the road on the second day, after hours of searching was a thrill I'll always remember.

Great Grey Owl (50) (Strix nebulosa) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1408) (Comments - 3798)
Canada (Ontario) This bird eluded us for most of the winter but briefly reappeared in an area where we could observe it. The Great Gray is truly a woodland owl but likes to hunt the edges when it can. In this case it rarely came to the roadside. We identified it as a first year bird based on the pointed rather than rounded tail tips and pale rather than dark-tipped primaries. I last saw it early in January.

Canada (Ontario) Algonquin Provincial Park - Some of the jays (renamed Canada Jay a couple of years ago) are already nesting but a few were on one trail taking advantage of handouts.

Northern Hawk-Owl (17) (Surnia ulula) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1408) (Comments - 3798)
Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - This bird has been present likely since December and will soon return to the boreal forest. I have seen it off and on throughout the winter but made a special trip to say goodbye. I spent some time observing it hunting, capturing a few shots.

Horned Lark/Shorelark (37) (Eremophila alpestris) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1408) (Comments - 3798)
Canada (Ontario) Crysler - I spent hours today trying to find the right individuals. It was tough (these are very difficult birds to work with) but I finally located an adult male that typifies what a Horned Lark looks like.

Willow Ptarmigan (4) (Lagopus lagopus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1408) (Comments - 3798)
Canada (Québec) Val-d'Or – We failed to find any the first day but got really lucky the next. This is a popular species for hunters and since regional hunters have to travel hundreds of km north in normal years, this year they are taking advantage of it close to home. That means birds close to the road are prime targets so they are slowly declining within 75 km of some towns.

Willow Ptarmigan (4) (Lagopus lagopus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1408) (Comments - 3798)
Canada (Québec) Val-d'Or - I made a trek in search of ptarmigan, perhaps my most wanted bird. This winter there has been a major irruption in Quebec, south of their normal range. It is the largest movement in 40 years and undoubtedly involves thousands of individuals. Normally the area from Val-d'Or to north of Amos has one or two if any. Still, we had a hard time finding them but in some locations there were numerous tracks alerting us to their presence.
