Hello Ontbirders,

The BOREAL CHICKADEE is still visiting Christine's Brunet's suet feeder in 
the backyard of 44 Front Road West.  The bird can be seen either at the suet 
feeder in the birch tree or in the first spruce closest to the birch tree.  
It has been seen on and off since January 8th.
For best viewing, park on Du Parc Road beside house across from backyard.  
The Boreal is not often present but when it is, it is usually seen between 
7:30 am and 8:00 am and between 4:00 pm and 4:30pm.

A CAROLINA WREN has been a regular visitor since mid-December at a backyard 
feeder on Front Road West, 5 minutes away from the Boreal Chickadee.  The 
wren is easily found feeding on the ground under the plastic feeder directly 
behind the house.  Because it can only be observed by entering the property 
the owners are leery to let any stranger on their property.  Anyone 
interested to see the bird should privately contact on of the undersignees to 
schedule a visit.

Directions:  Take Hwy 417 east to exit # 27: Vankleek Hill and Hawkesbury.  
At flashing amber light, turn left (north) on Hwy 34 and drive though 
Vankleek Hill, continue northward towards the town of Hawkesbury and pass 2 
traffic lights.  At the 3rd light at the corner of McGill (Hwy 34 becomes 
McGill in Hawkesbury) and Main St. Turn left (west) and drive 2.6 km.  To see 
the BOREAL CHICKADEE turn right (northwest) on Front Road West and look for 
the house with civic number 44 on the right side (7th house on the north side 
of Front Road West).
