The 2008 Bigby started with an American Crow … a good-luck bird, shortly followed by a beautiful male Northern Cardinal. Sadly much snow and wind are with us, and most of the birds are keeping their heads well down – rarely much rare at this time of the year, but I have hopes of Hoary Redpolls shortly, they are in the area..





So – we waited out the weather and it just got worse so finally we decided to start our Walking Bigby with a tramp into the adjacent town of St-Anne-de-Bellevue (excuse was also having a letter to post) … for all those of you not living in lands with ‘well-defined seasons” like Quebec enjoys, just see what you are missing.
