I wonder how our early migrants are coping, with the lovely weather we had today.
After a month of above average temperatures and 3 record breaking days, we woke up to 4 inches of snow. I picked a great day to go golfing.
On a recent trip along Chaffey’s Locks Road and Opinicon Road looking for early migrants netted a few birds Red-shouldered Hawk, Bluebirds, Eastern Towhee,Tree Swallows, Pine Warblers, Field, Swamp and Song Sparrows, a few Wild Turkeys, Ring-necked Ducks.
A very co-operative Eastern Towhee allowed us to photograph him, really putting on a show. We didn’t see a female but he just didn’t want to leave this spot.
Our northern Towhees have a red eyes but the further south you go, the eye turns a straw color.
