Where’s the Snow?

St-Clet, Quebec

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.

Winter Birding

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.

Tufted Titmouse

This unusual fellow appeared for a few very cool and snowy days over the Christmas period 2013/14 – he or she should have headed south but had fund some feeders and seemed to be quite content.
