Hello Ontbirders and Ottawa Winter Listers

There's a drake Wood Duck and a male Belted Kingfisher in the area of  
Bayshore.
The two birds were along Graham Creek behind the Recreational Centre/ 
Police Station/Minto Sales Office.
The birds were seen from the foot bridge over the creek, next to the  
Queensway.
It's possible that these birds are patrolling the creek and might be  
occasionally viewed from Andrew Hayden Park.

Directions:
1) From Carling Ave., turn south on Bayshore Drive. Turn right (west)  
on Woodridge Cr., and follow it all the way around to the  
Recreational Centre/Police Station/Minto Sales Office.
Park in the free parking of the Recreational Centre. Look for the  
large foot bridge over the creek, in the direction of the Queensway.
2) From Queensway Westbound, take the Bayshore exit, turn left on  
Woodridge Cr. and continue per above.
3) From Queensway Eastbound, take Holly Acres exit. Turn left (north)  
on Holly Acres Road to Carling Ave. Turn right (east) and go to the  
first set of lights - Bayshore Drive. Follow as per above.

Cheerio
