Eurasian Wigeon

June 23, 2014

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.
