> Seven Red-necked Phalaropes were on the Ottawa River east of
> Deschenes the same evening, and another Red-necked Phalarope was

> of June 6.

> Two American Bitterns were in the marsh west of Moodie Drive
> between Nortel and the Equestrian Park on the morning of the 6th,

> An adult Black-crowned Night-Heron was at the east end of Mud Lake

> A visit to the Richmond fen on the night of June 4th produced 2

> Also of local interest are nesting Ospreys - the nests at Fitzroy
> Harbour and along the Thomas Dolan Parkway at Constance Creek both
> have young. Several Black-billed Cuckoos and Eastern Towhees were
> present in the Carp hills along the Thomas Dolan Parkway on the
