Ile Saint-Bernard, January 29, 2017
  Dan and I went to Ile Saint-Bernard yesterday, always a lovely spot.  Initially sunny, a huge snow squall pushed through around noon.  I liked it.  There was a pair of Great Gray Owls around, but we were too cool to hang around the scrum - too cool for those squares, daddy-o.  I actually loathe being around such a scene.  That's just me.  Anyway, we found our own Great Gray a few years back at the Arbo (http://snowyowllost.blogspot.ca/2013/01/montreal-morgan-arboretum-january-16.html). I got a kick out of watching Song and American Tree Sparrows interact.
