I visited Presqu'ile Provincial Park and surrounding areas yesterday looking for migratory waterfowl. While it appears that the largest concentration of ducks had moved on, there were still several thousand in the bay.

Near the end of the day three male Hooded Mergansers flew by and were staying very close to a female in hopes of becoming her suitor.

A female Snowy Owl keeps her eye on me as she flies by. She had been sitting in a field and I was on the roadside when she started flying past my position. My Canon R5 was able to keep her in focus despite the low contrast between her and the snow.

Carolina Wrens have have occasionally passed very briefly through our backyard during migration but despite all my efforts I've never been able to capture an image of one.
Recently, while out on a local trail I managed to get my first image of this cute wren.
