ANOTHER Gray-crowned Rosy-Finch, BUT...

BUT this one is a Hepburn's! Yes, amazingly, we now have two subspecies of Gray-crowned Rosy-Finch in Manitoba. This "Hepburn's" (also referred to as "coastal" or littoralis subspecies) has recently shown up in Winnipeg... the last time this subspecies was recorded in Manitoba may go back all the way to 1978 (Winnipegosis area)...

What a winter! But wait, I also found some incubating Great Horned Owls today - so maybe it is really spring?
