Les résultats de la sortie de ce matin, le 7 décembre 2013, dans la région de Casselman, Moose Creek et Ste-Rose

Hi all,

This is a far cry of the 45 species we got on the trip held on 5 December 2011.  But in all fairness some of us did go all day in 2011 and went as far as the Ottawa area. In 2011 we were 20 people while today we were only 4 in all.  Today was sunny with a bitter cold wind at times, and temperatures ranged from -7 to -4 Celsius.
The bird of the day was Lesser Black-backed Gull (2 adults) near the Moose Creek dump.  Runners up were Bald Eagle (an adult) and Snow Buntings (24).

Here is the list of the other 21 species and their numbers (in brackets):
