February 2004 Sightings in the Windsor Area
Sunday, February 29: Small numbers of Red-winged Blackbirds, Common Grackles and American Robins are being reported throughout the local area this weekend with the arrival of warm weather. The first chipmunks appeared at the nature centre on February 26.
Monday, February 23: Ron Muir showed us a nesting Great Horned Owl at Spring Garden Natural Area today. Great Horned Owls are the earliest birds to start nesting each spring. Bald Eagles are preparing to nest. The pair at Peche Island are currently rebuilding the nest they used last year.
Saturday, February 21: The highlight of Ojibway's birding trip to Point Pelee today was finding six Long-eared Owls perched beside the road along Concession E, just outside the park. They were sitting low to the ground across from the house at #1611. Early spring migrants included Horned Larks, three Snow Geese, American Wigeon, Redhead, Mallards and Black Ducks.
