The first few images in this gallery are from a winter owling trip to southeastern Ontario (February 3-6, 2005). The leader of our group of five was Tom Hince (see Resources), a superb Canadian guide based near Point Pelee; we have previously birded with him there. We succeeded spectacularly in our aim to see unusual wintering owls: We saw one boreal owl, three snowy owls, two hawk owls, and fifty (50) great grey owls.
The bulk of the images are from Point Pelee (with a handful from the Magee Marsh across Lake Erie in Ohio), which we have visited numerous times. It is a superb spot for migrating warblers, as I hope the images will bring home. Initially we were partially guided by Tom Hince, but increasingly we were on our own.
