Winchester - Discovered a few days ago and since we are late in the season, the bird could head north any day now.

Ottawa - The winter is winding down so we can expect that this bird will be heading back to the boreal forest in two to three weeks. Because of its location along a popular walking/skiiing path it was viewed by countless people over the past few months. I wanted to make a final visit before it moves on.

Ottawa - I returned to watch this bird for a few hours. It was hunting off and on but didn't come up with a vole so when it got hungry, it went to one of its caches and had a frozen dinner. :)

Ottawa - a cold north wind and biting temperature was of no concern to this Hawk Owl. There are several in the region again this winter.

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.

It is always a treat to see these birds down south, away from their boreal environment.

Trois Rivieres - This bird has been around most of the season and was my 5th one this winter. These owls will be heading north in the next few weeks but it has been an enjoyable winter with them.

Ottawa - This Pileated is not pleased that the owl is still around. It let it know several times. Maybe it had plans to take down the treetop :)
