Dewberry Trail, Mer Bleue & Wall Road - Ottawa East with Tony Beck

Thursday Jan 14, 8:00am

Heather, Tony & I met at Trim Road, and drove over to Mer Bleue, where we met Rick. We birded there for an hour, and then drove to Navan for coffee and soup.
The rest of the morning, we drove the backroads south of Navan. Today we had 15 species – Blue Jay, Black-capped Chickadee, Hairy Woodpecker, Downy Woodpecker, American Crow, Mourning Dove, Red-tailed Hawk, Northern Shrike, European Starling, House Sparrow, Rock Pigeon, Snow Bunting, American Tree Sparrow, Wild Turkey, and Northern Cardinal (when I got home). Rick also heard a White-breasted Nuthatch and a Brown Creeper before we arrived at Dewberry Trail.

  1. I love the colors in your Cardinal photo. The soft warm tones in the plumage of the female Cardinal are lovely against the greens of the pine tree. The bits of snow show time and season. Its a nice image Bill.
