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.

Chateauguay - Île Saint-Bernard. With virtually no winter finches to see, birds such as the Tree Sparrow offer some relief for weary observers.

On a cold winter like the last one it was not easy to find songbirds around... this one was in a flock just close to the Lake Erie shore!

We seem to get one or two each winter in this location. A treat for the west coast.
