Summer Tanager

January 11, 2016

It's hard to believe, but Ottawa has another rarity.  We decided to combine a trip to the India visa office with a visit to the Summer Tanager.  It was a bitterly cold day, and we almost gave up hope after waiting a good ten minutes.  We got back in the car and drove slowly by; and there is was at the feeder with some House Finches.  We then went to the Rideau Tennis Club to check out the river from the new pedestrian bridge.  There were the usual Common Goldeneyes and a Common Merganser in with the Mallards.  The cold wind off the river on the bridge was decidedly unpleasant.
