> Last weekend we had a group of seven people along for a fantastic Algonquin trip. The highlight was undoubtedly a Northern Hawk Owl seen at close range on Friday near Ottawa - the best way to kick off a weekend of winter birding in the northeast! We also had a great finch showing with many Red and White-winged Crossbills and Pine and Evening Grosbeaks, among more common species. The full species list can be found below.

> Our next trip will be to coastal Massachusetts on Feb 23-25. We will be leaving after classes the afternoon of Friday, Feb 23, and will return Sunday evening. This is another cold trip, but there is some really cool species potential! The trip ran for the first time last year, and some highlights included lots of alcids (both murres, Dovekie, and Black Guillemot) and other coastal winter species like Lapland Longspur and Iceland and Glaucous Gulls. We will also target Barrow's Goldeneye, King Eider, Black-legged Kittiwake, and Purple Sandpiper, among other species.
