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.
