Maplehill Park

Apr 25, 2014

We had some business in Manotick, then stopped for lunch.  Afterwards, we decided to check close by Maplehill Park, where John Ruddy had reported a "Yellow" Palm Warbler the day before.

We parked at the north end of Hazelwood Way and started north on the soggy path.  Soon we spotted a couple of birders - none other that John Ruddy and friend.  He enthused about the area and told us they had just seen the Palm Warber again and marked the spot with an X on the trail.

We hurried on to the area but could not get the Palm to show.  There were plenty of Ruby-crowned Kinglets and we also saw a pair of Brown-headed Cowbirds.
