Today, July 6th, at around noon I observed a pair of Red-headed
Woodpeckers in an old burn area near Constance Bay. The woodpeckers were
very active- flycatching and harassing an adult Broad-winged Hawk which
was perched in a dead tree. They were very agitated by its presence..
Directions: From Ottawa travel west bound on Hwy. 417 to the March
Rd./Eagleson Road and exit right onto March Rd. Follow to Dunrobin Road
and turn right continuing northwest through Woodlawn. At the hill turn
right onto Constance Bay Rd following it for approx. 1.5 km. Turn left
on Allbirch Road and drive 1.3 km to the " T " intersection. Turn left
on Bishop Davis Drive and then right on Bayview Drive. Follow Bayview
Drive to Ritchie St. Turn right and and go a short distance to Whistler
Rd. Turn left and drive .3 km and watch for a gate on the right. The
trail through the burn area is opposite the gate. Parking is limited.
The old burn area is on your left. There is an abundance of Poison Ivy
in the burn area. It is recommended to stay on the trails.
