Hello Ontbirders
    For those interested the Red-headed Woodpeckers are still at the old
burn site at Constance Bay. Yesterday, July 19th adults were observed
flying to the nest site in a dead poplar just north east of the gate.
They spent most of the time foraging around the old burn site opposite
the gate.

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.
                                                good birding
