Hello Ontbirds people,

A male Oregon Junco ("Dark-eyed Junco, Oregon form") 1st reported on 12 November was seen again at the Fletcher Wildlife Garden today, 28 November at ~ 1:00 pm.  It was loosely associating with several other birds at the feeder behind the FWG Interpretive Centre (building #138) including 2 White-throated Sparrows and 3 Dark-eyed Juncos ("Slate-coloured form" - 2 males and 1 very brown female). 


>From downtown Ottawa, ON, take Preston St. south until it becomes Prince of Wales Dr. at Dow's Lake, continue south and look for the sign on your left indicating the Fletcher Wildlife Garden.  The FWG Interpretive Centre (#138) is at the very end of the driveway..but there are many areas worth exploring here for birds, including those at the nearby Arboretum of the Central Experimental Farm.  The Oregon Junco has also been seen by the feeders at the south side of the FWG (opposite Carleton University), as well as at the Arboretuem near building #72.
