Purple Sandpiper

Finally found the Purple Sandpipers today after weeks of searching. Ruddy Turnstones and Razorbill were a bonus.

Ring-billed Gull

Was out again today with Bill. Took quite a few shots including a few of two more Barred Owls. This was one of the last shots of the day and my favourite.

Barred Owl

Another Barred Owl today on the side of the road in Little Harbour. This is just before he took off.  My flight shots weren't great, I expect that Bill got some good ones though.

Common Redpoll

The Redpolls have arrived in numbers after weeks of one or two. Now there are probably fourty or more coming to my feeders.

Barred Owl

This Barred Owl was hunting during the day. Out of the deep woods he provided a chance for a reasonable shot in favourable light.

Winter Wren

Lucky shot of a Winter Wren after about an hour trying to get it to sit in plain view.

Red-breasted Nuthatch

 One of my favorite shots from late last year , this Red-breasted Nuthatch is the only one I've seen near my feeders this past winter. Most winters they are fairly numerous and regular.
