Rideau Trail – Ottawa West with John McAlpine

Tuesday, Oct. 13. 2:30 pm

Friends John and Mary Anne had spotted and photographed a Black-backed Woodpecker on Monday. I persuaded John to guide me there, and surprise, he was still there chopping away at the same tree. On the trail, we also saw a yellow-rumped Warbler, a Ruby-throated Kinglet and lots of Black-capped Chickadees.

  1. Black-backed Woodpecker is a GREAT find Bill and your photos are superb. Let's hope we find another this winter. I would love to get photos of this species.
