Still working on making sure I did not miss any presents from Santa. I will get the data summarized soon and post it here, as well as enter it in the international data base.

In the mean time you can see an update in the Timmins Daily Press.

You can read the media story of another successful bird count in Timmins.

Ring Necked Pheasant

While at the hockey rink the other day one of the Dads commented I would not believe what he had seen in his yard.

A ring necked pheasant! He was surprised to learn I already had a picture of it!

Thanks Pam!
You can see another picture of the bird at Pam's Blog. She is a very talented artist and has some great stories on a crow family she has be-friended.

I have added this observation to the Timmins Naturalist Observations Webpage.
