At lunch time today, there was a Grey-cheeked Thrush in the woodlot
north-west of Tunney's Pasture and south-west of the Champlain bridge.
It allowed excellent and prolonged views, which is certainly not always
the case with this species. There was also a singing Canada Warbler, but
apparently few other migrants.

Directions: The woodlot is south-east of the Ottawa River Parkway/Island
Park intersection. I suggest parking on one of the residential streets
such as Carleton (but be aware of parking restrictions). At its north
end, Carleton turns into a paved path that goes down to the river. Take
only a few paces on the path, then head left (west) where you'll pick up
a wide dirt path that goes east-west through the woodlot. Go right
(north) up one of the short north-south paths then left again along a
narrow east-west dirt path, which parallels the first-mentioned wide
path. The thrush was on both sides and sometimes on the narrow east-west
path. It was still there when I left.
