February 2003 Sightings in the Windsor Area

Black-capped Chickadee

line

Thursday, February 27: Ian Woodfield reports that the Northern Saw-whet Owl continues to be seen near the Little River Pollution Control Plant and that the number of Long-eared Owls there has increased to four.

Monday, February 24: A flock of twenty male Common Grackles appeared today despite return of cold weather and the severe snowstorm that swept through the region on the 22nd.

Friday, February 21: Spring is in the air. Carolina Wrens, Black-capped Chickadees, House Finches, Northern Cardinals, Song Sparrows and Mourning Doves were heard singing today during this brief mild spell. A rufous phase Eastern Screech-Owl was seen at one of the nest boxes near the nature centre.

Sunday, February 16: Paul DesJardins and Ian Woodfield located the male White-winged Scoter at Lakeview Marina today. They also birded the area around the Little River pollution control plant and found Belted Kingfisher, Northern Saw-whet Owl and Long-eared Owl.

Monday, February 10: A White-winged Scoter was present at Lakeview Marina (opposite Peche Island) on Saturday (by Pete Bondy). This location continues to be an excellent location to see a variety of wintering waterfowl.

Monday, February 3: The Winter Festival attracted over 800 people to the park on Sunday. We would like to thank Heart Health Action, CKLW, Pepsi, Friends of Ojibway Prairie and Essex County Field Naturalists' Club for their participation and assistance.

A Belted Kingfisher can be seen most days on the south side of Todd Lane at Turkey Creek. A small pocket of open water is providing a fishing hole for the kingfisher.
