Canoe Trip Birding

August 19-26

We were on a week-long canoe trip near Biscotasing, north of Sudbury.

It's easier to do fishing than birding when on a trip with 15 other people.  But we did spot 3 Bald Eagles, including a juvenile, and a number of ducks, which we took to be Redheads.  Close inspection of the photos upon our return led us to believe that they were juvenile Common Goldeneyes - something we don't usually see around Ottawa.  We got close to one - here is a photo.



We also saw a couple of Spring Peepers and a Mink Frog.  It was interesting that there are no Turkey Vultures that far north.
