      Headed for the Centre Block this a.m. 5 km. south of town the nest
      (about 5 m. up in a Manitoba Maple) that last year was used by a pair
      of Great Horned Owls this year is being used by a pair of Canada Geese.
      In the park: Hairy Woodpeckers, Black-capped Chickadees, Red-breasted
      Nuthatches, and a Common Redpoll. On the way home: a Bald Eagle at the
      Fleming Ranch; a small flock of Bohemian Waxwings; Black-billed Magpies;
      Horned Larks. Thought I could see open water at the Harris Reservoir so
      drove in to check it out. It's about one half ice-free. Many Canada
      Geese; Common Goldeneye, 50 or more, all but one of them males; a few
      Mallards; several pairs of Northern Pintails; one male American Wigeon;
      one male Common Merganser; and one male *RING-NECKED DUCK.

      *Peace
