Amherst Island, Ontario

We saw four different Snowy Owls on the Island today.
They were easy to spot on their prominent perches.

Red-tailed Hawk

Horned Lark

Eastern Meadowlark
We were surprised to see several of these as they aren't
a winter bird here.

All of the above birds were seen while driving around the island. We walked into Owl Woods but for all the trudging through the snow we only saw one Long Eared Owl. We had hoped for Northern Saw-whet and Boreal but no luck.
