short-eared owl, Washago

On Macarthur Sideroad, just south of the Muskoka border and east of Washago we were watching between 12 and 14 yellowlegs -- not very good at differentiating between the Lesser and Greater: they seemed to have a slightly shorter bill than the Greater Yellowlegs and more pronounced chest markings than the Lesser....
While we watched a Short-eared Owl landed in the same field and preened itself for a while before flying off again.
Also along the road, a lot of Wilson' Snipe in flight song, Meadowlarks, a lone Savannah Sparrow.
Over on the Gravenhurst side, Graham Drive, our first Hermit Thrush of the season, and a Winter Wren.
And this morning, Ruby-crowned kinglets had begun singing along our road. Pine Warbler, finches, Swamp Sparrows, a lone Sandhill flying over, Brown Creepers, Mallard, Bufflehead and Wood Ducks along with the usual suspects. All in all, a great day for variety.
