Purple Sandpipers

There were probably forty or more Purple Sandpipers on the rocks at West Head.
They didn't seem to mind me being there and so I managed to get several good
shots. Dec. 27, 2013.

Red-bellied Woodpecker

This bird arrived at my feeder yesterday morning as I was leaving to go birding.
 Glad she stuck around until I got back home when the light was much better.

Snowy Owl

These are all images of the same bird, one of three or four Snowy Owls that were found at West Head
 by Bill this past week. These were all taken on November 29, there was also one at
 Mathew's Lake today - Dec. 1.

White-throated Sparrows

Two of a large number of White-throated Sparrows that have been visiting the yard under
 the bird feeders this year. November 25, East Jordan. I assume the top one is a juvenile.
This one was taken on December 8, East Jordan, NS.
