This morning (Sunday Dec 2 2007) at 9:00 am there was a large flock (300+)
of Bohemian Waxwings beside Prince of Wales Drive opposite the entrance to
Fletcher Gardens at the Experimental Farm in Ottawa. The Oregon Junco
reported earlier was still at the feeder behind the FWG Interpretive Centre
along with a flock of Common Redpolls and other winter birds.

Directions borrowed from Chris Lewis;
>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.
