Every picture tells a story

New Year's Day 2008 was OK, up until 10.00 when a 'snow event' took place dumping yet more of the white stuff on us. Prior to that I took a look around the fields at St-Clet just west of Montreal, seeing one immature Snowy Owl, 300+ Snow Buntings, two Lapland Longspurs, 30 Horned Larks and 10 Wild Turkeys.

Dropping down onto the Chemin de la Fleuve between Les Cedres and Point-aux-Cascades a few Black Duck, Common Goldeneyes and Mallards were mixed in with 40 or so Common Mergansers and two Red-breasted Mergansers, a Northern Grey Shrike was nearby.

St-Lazare sand pits is a barren, snowy waste at the moment, I expect to improve on Blue Jay, American Crow and the omnipresent Rock Doves when the weather improves.
