Connecting Lake Simcoe's Community

The 13th annual Bradford area Christmas Bird Count was held on Sunday, Jan. 2, with 16 in-field observers and two feeder watchers participating.
The group saw a total of 46 species, bang on the average for this count.
Highlights included the Bradford CBC's first-ever ruby-crowned kinglet (the 92nd species for this count's history), the second-ever long-eared owl, three ravens, a snowy owl, 12 bohemian waxwings, a red-bellied woodpecker, goshawk, horned lark, merlin, five rough-legged hawks, and 6 northern shrikes.
It was a good day out and a nice way to start the new year.
Bradford is at the south end of Lake Simcoe's Cook Bay, next to the Holland Marsh.
