Monday, February 22: Another snow storm arrived today bringing 15 cm of fresh snow. Ojibway's feeders continue to be busy. A Swamp Sparrow appeared at the feeders on February 12 and a Red-winged Blackbird was seen February 18. Cardinals, House Finches and Tufted Titmice have been singing regularly on warmer days.

A Peregrine Falcon was seen Feb 10 at the Hiram Walker grain silos by Paul Pratt and another was seen at Malden Park by Ian Woodfield on February 20.

Thursday, February 11: A Fox Sparrow has been coming to the nature centre feeders since January 10. The feeders have been very active since the snow arrived on Tuesday.

The breeding season for White-tailed Deer is now long past and most bucks have dropped their antlers. Other wildlife such as coyotes, squirrels and raccoons are becoming more active with the lengthening days. We are geting more reports of people hearing coyotes howling at night.
