I began Day Two of our brutal winter temperatures feeling quite sorry for these Canada Geese and Mallards that were all huddled together in some open water:
The frozen feathers of these Canada Geese makes one think that they've been sprinkled with a bit of icing sugar! hey, it's the baker in me, what can I say??:
A Barred Owl sits on a branch as the snow comes in off the lake:
Sweet! sorry, Les
I then met up with Skip and John in Brooklin where they both put me under enormous pressure to find Bohemian Waxwings for them- or should I say Waxwing singular, as that's all we saw, in exactly the same spot as yesterday, mixed in with American Robins:
From there we drove around the various concessions and didn't see very much else, other than House Finches, American Goldfinches, American Tree Sparrows, Black-capped Chickadees, American Crows, Common Ravens, and Snow Buntings.
As we returned back south to "central" Pickering, we saw a Red-tailed Hawk soaring over us, giving its wonderful "keeer-r-r" cry, what better way to end our day together!
