This past Saturday, I had plans to make it to Point Pelee for sunrise, but when the alarm went off, hitting the snooze button felt like a better plan.  Hey, it’s not migration so I can be a little lazier.  I was still out the door at a respectable 7:15…

We recently returned from another fantastic trip to Southwest Florida (Fort Myers area).  We drove through some snow flurries on the way to the airport and arrived to beautiful sunny skies.  We packed in a lot on our trip. Hiking, swimming, zoo-ing, and…

I was out the door early this morning with plans to bird Point Pelee at first light. I had a few birds on my mind that I wanted to put some effort into trying to see: Eastern Whip-poor-will, any Jaeger, Nelson’s Sparrow, and maybe even a Pine Siskin or…

This past weekend I headed out to a tradeshow in Calgary for work.  I had never been to Alberta so I was really looking forward to this trip.  I didn’t have a lot of time to get around but I knew I would still have a good chance at seeing a few new birds…

I recently ventured out in the county before work in hopes of spotting a Northern Shrike that had been reported in the area. No shrike for me but I did get a fantastic consolation prize – seeing 7 Short-eared Owls in the early morning light and fog. I…

I was able to get a few days off at the beginning of the week so we decided to take a last minute trip up to Algonquin. This would be the kids’ first trip up to the park, a place Sarah and I love to visit in the winter.  This time we were going to […]

It’s that time of year again… Christmas Bird Count season!  If you’re not familiar, a Christmas Bird Count, or CBC for short, is a day long event where volunteers count birds within a 24km diameter circle (count circle).  CBC’s take place between December…
