A Love of Birds-Video

Those of you that subscribe to the Ontbirds report have most likely viewed the video below. The Ontbirds e-mail informed all that OFO member Doug Tozer successfully defended his Ph.D. at Trent University last week. He studied the Yellow-bellied Sapsucker in Algonquin Provincial Park.

For those birders outside of Ontario, the short video is about Doug and some of the birds you can find in Algonquin Provincial Park. Truly amazing footage of the park's birds.

Having viewed it myself, I find that I cannot wait for the upcoming trip Jean and I will be taking to the provincial park to observe some of the species found in the video. We're hoping for a lifer Evening Grosbeak.



  1. always enjoy your blog,
    for the evening grosbeak we have them showing everyday right now,drop in on the way to the park,Algonquin Laleside Inn on hwy 60 before the west gate at the Oxtongue Lake bridge,

  2. Thanks Gary,

    Actually, my wife and I dropped in around 9:00 AM on Monday (4/19). I did not see your comment until now (4/20). What an amazing coincidence! I was on the OFO trip when you posted your comment.

    Thanks for allowing Jean and I access to the rear of your property. Thanks for the lifer Evening Grosbeak!

    Good Birding,
