Doing the 2020 Christmas Bird Count route that includes the flatlands around St-Clet we were disappointed to not have snow – a bit of ice but that was about it. On the other hand, this was the location where we enjoyed a flock of Snow Buntings.
Birding any time of the year is good but somehow it is best in the winter – fewer birds, that’s true, but the ones you do see are the hardy sort and you get them to yourself without crowds on the trails.
Looking west along the St-Lawrence from the Baie-D’Urfé town hall we were struck by remarkable light between a series of rain showers. Only had the iPhone again which doesn’t quite do justice but you will get the feeling, I hope.
