THE OFNC BIRD STATUS LINE, 6:30 am, MONDAY JUNE 18, 2007
This is Chris Lewis reporting.
A quiet week, as is typical for this time of year. A lone Brant has
out with the Canada Geese on the lawn at the Remic rapids lookout parking lot
all week and still appeared content here on the 16th. A visit to the
Marais aux Grenouillettes west of Masson, Quebec on the 16th
yielded several good species including Pied-billed Grebe with young,
American Bittern, LEAST BITTERN, Common Moorhen, a thriving BLACK TERN
colony, 7 species of flycatchers including both Alder and Willow, and both
House Wren and Marsh Wren. LEAST BITTERNS were also heard along County
Rd. 14 south of Perth on the 9th and in the marsh north of the Nepean
Equestrian Park on the 10th.
The Carp Hills along the Thomas Dolan Parkway was a good place to find
Whip-poor-will and displaying American Woodcocks during the week, and a
Common Nighthawk was heard in downtown Ottawa on the evening of the
16th. The most interesting songbird reports came from the Larose forest
where a YELLOW-THROATED VIREO was discovered in the woods along a trail
west off Nine Mile Rd. on the 8th and several CAPE MAY WARBLERS have been
seen and heard in a White Spruce stand along Nine Mile Rd. south of
Clarence-Cambridge Rd. for the past couple of weeks.
Thank you - Good Birding!
