Common Redpoll (37) (Carduelis flammea) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1382) (Comments - 3742)
Canada (Ontario) Cornwall - There has been a very strong southward movement of redpolls this winter. Thousands of birds have been in weedy fields and scrubby roadsides since early December but are now appearing at feeders, occasionally in large numbers.

Great Horned Owl (22) (Bubo virginianus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1382) (Comments - 3742)
Canada (Ontario) Eastern Ontario - This is not a local bird. It is a subspecies from the North, A Snyder's Great Horned Owl, which sometimes migrates south in the winter, especially when snowshoe hares have a low population. It is a rare occurrence. This subspecies lacks the rich browns of southern birds, having an overall grayer appearance. It is also less intimidated by humans, more like a Barred Owl. Our local Great Horned Owls are very skittish.

Northern Saw-whet Owl (12) (Aegolius acadicus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1382) (Comments - 3742)
Canada (Ontario) Most of these owls migrate but a few stick around through the winter. They are usually difficult to find, spending the day tucked close to the trunk of a dense evergreen where branches make a clean shot all but impossible. After finding the bird I quickly took a few photos then left it alone.

Hoary Redpoll (7) (Carduelis hornemanni) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1382) (Comments - 3742)
Canada (Ontario) Wolfe Island (Kingston) - The uncommon Hoary in comparison with a Common Redpoll on the right. The hoary is paler overall with dull side streaks, unstreaked under the tail and a small bill, giving the face a pushed in look. Thousands of Common Redpolls have descended from the North and are appearing mainly in flocks of 25-100 in rural areas. Weedy fields or roadsides are preferred. When the snow is deep they should appear at feeders. There are a small number of Hoary Redpolls with them. Redpolls are annoyingly skittish, often remaining only moments for observation. When they are at feeders they are far easier to observe.

Barrow's Goldeneye (17) (Bucephala islandica) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1382) (Comments - 3742)
Canada (Ontario) Long Sault - I returned to the area to try for a male that had been seen with the female. I found it and after quite some time it swam close enough to the road that I was able to get good shots.

Barrow's Goldeneye (17) (Bucephala islandica) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1382) (Comments - 3742)
Canada (Ontario) Long Sault - The noticeable differences between the Barrow's female and the Common Goldeneye are a shorter bill that is yellow or yellow-orange, a more vertical head profile and darker head plumage. The head darkness is harder to separate from the Common in dull light.
