A rather confused willow ptarmigan, whether on a late

migration north to the tundra in the far north of Canada, or having decided that it was "too darn hot" (1948, Cole Porter, Kiss Me Kate) to fly the rest of the way and settled at Port Darlington Nuclear Reactor on the North Shore of Lake Ontario near Bowmanville. two days ago. Birders, or twitchers (in Britain) connected by Twitter and cellphones showed up in droves. The Ontario Energy Corp Nuclear division brought 3 bus loads to binocular distance. Whether this is a temporary hiatus (most likely) or an odd reaction to climate changes remains to be seen.

The strange influence of technology on rather old fashioned recreations.
