February 22, 2008: Birding Amherst Island, Ontario and 1000 Islands

We spent the morning returning to Amherst Island, going to the Owl Woods (link) again (not as productive as yesterday), and then also driving around the island, where we found some cool things). Then, we also got some nice photos on the way out of town, towards the 1,000 islands...
Had a nice lunch at "Sakura", a new looking Japanese restaurant in Kingston.
