Although too busy for extended birding outings, this guy was just too easy to pass up. Persistent eBird reports had him at the mouth of the
Rideau Canal. I drove Barbara to work, then circled back
and parked at the Mill. A pleasant 15
minute walk along the Ottawa River brought me to the
area. And there he was, sitting all
alone on the cement pier where the boats tie up. Other water birds included Mallards and large
numbers of juvenile Canada Geese.
