February Nature Sightings

I have been out and about recently at various spots, mostly in the KW area as well as Hamilton/Niagara for field work.  Below are a few photos, the highlight was certainly a Short-eared Owl that I came across the other day down in Niagara.

Short-eared Owl

I watched it forage for a few minutes.  I enjoy seeing Short-eared Owls in flight, they remind me of a giant butterfly, their wing beats are so animated!

The Harlequin Duck has remained near the Burlington Ship Canal over the past few weeks.  I still have not caught up with that Tufted Duck is becoming something of a nemesis bird.
