Trumpeter Swans were seen flying to the farm fields.

Green-winged Teal were seen walking on thin ice.

Double-crested Cormorants were seen as usual.

Northwestern Crows were seen.

The resident Bald Eagles were trying to convince several young Bald Eagles to leave the area.

On the 26th, according to the weatherman, Graupel was falling, also called soft hail or snow pellets, is precipitation that forms when super cooled water droplets are collected and freeze on falling snowflakes.

We enjoyed chatting with Deb, Charlie with Jack, Alyson with Chesney, Ilya, monitoring the Great Blue Heron Colony while work was being done on the Main Road, Sandra with Jasmine, Elsa and Shadow, Liz and Gordon with Boomer, as well as Shirley and Bob on the trails. We also enjoyed chatting with Hazel and Delia filling the feeders at the Rotary Interpretive Centre.
