First was a Spotted Towhee on River Trail in London, Ontario. It was seen visiting bird feeders in between a row of houses. The sun was high up and behind creating a tough condition. This was my second sighting of a Spotted Towhee; the first one was in Glen Williams in 2014.

Second was an Eurasian Wigeon last week-end in Port Rowan Wetlands near Long Point. It was mixing with a group of American Wigeon and was tough to locate among hundreds of other water fowls.
