Waterfowl, Gulls and Assorted Songbirds – Ottawa West with Tony Beck

Thursday April 18

We began at Andrew Haydon Park.  I forgot to note the birders today, so going from memory I have: Tony, Nina, Josh, Heather, Helena, Ian and me.  There may have been a couple of others.

We birded at Andrew Haydon, then went to Burnside.  We went to Richmond and stopped at the new Tim Hortons.  We went up Conley Road, then used the back roads to get out past Black's Corners.  It was drizzling and the Trumpeter Swans were not to be found.  We headed back to town and found a surprise Sandhill Crane on Terry Fox.  We finished up by going to Shirleys' Bay and Hilda, where we saw the black chipmunk again.
