Hi All,

On Feb. 19, 2006, around 1630 hrs., I had a male Green-winged Teal
(remarkably early or late - hard to tell this winter), the previously
reported female Lesser Scaup and two Canada Geese among the many
Mallards, a few Black Ducks and a lone Common Merganser; all below the
bridge over the West Branch of the Rideau River on Bridge Street in
Manotick, ON, a.k.a. Watson's Mill. A photo was taken of the teal, for
the record.

Directions to this Site from Ottawa (from NeilyWorld at
www.neilyworld.com/rideauw19.htm): From Highway 416 (The Veteran's
Memorial Highway) take exit 57 (Bankfield Road) and turn northeast on
it. Follow Bankfield 4.0 km northeast to Rideau Valley Drive/Main
Street, then turn right or southeast onto Main Street. Go 0.3 km to
Bridge Street and turn left or ENE onto it. Drive 0.2 km to Dickinson
Street and turn right or southeast onto it. There is parking near the
old mill on the right for the Watson's Mill site in Manotick.
