The First Spring Arrivals - Ottawa West with Tony Beck

Tuesday Mar 27, 8:00am

 Today it was just Tony, Rick and me.

We went first to Shirley's Bay, then Hilda.  We walked around to Riverdown and spotted an Eastern Phoebe.  From there we went out March Valley Road to Riddell, then down to Constance Lake on Berry Side Road.  We stopped along 5th Line where Bob Cermak got us on an Eastern Bluebird.  We turned up Thomas Dolan and checked the creek where we saw a couple of Swamp Sparrows.  Then we went all the way to Carp Ridge, then on to Carp.  We came back in March Road with a detour by March Valley to Carling and back.
