Jane told us of a Northern Hawk Owl in a park in the city of Gatineau. The instructions were not definite, but we muddled around until we spotted a photographer getting out of his car. Ha! The trail was very icy and we had to proceed carefully, since we had not brought our spikes. Soon we spotted a few photographers gathered together in the bush, a definite sign that our quarry was near. Sure enough, there it was, perched out in the open with a nice blue sky behind.
While in the neighbourhood, we decided to check out Lac Beauchamp for possible activities for the grandkids. While there, we saw a few deer cross the road.
Before going home, we decided to go to the Rideau Tennis club for Barrow’s Goldeneye. Alas, no luck, but there were several Commons.
