Tony Beck's group visited several habitats east of Ottawa this morning (June
29th) in search of migrating shorebirds and we found several at the
Casselman Lagoons! Birds observed were: Short-billed Dowitcher (1),
Yellowlegs (2), Lesser Yellowlegs (7), and Least Sandpiper (9).
Directions to Casselman Lagoons (courtesy of NeilyWorld): From Highway 417
(The Queensway), 52 km east of Ottawa, take the Casselman exit (66) and go
NNW toward the town of Casselman. Drive 1.1 km NNW into town on Rue
Principale, crossing the railway tracks and the main cross-street (St.
Isidore), to turn right or northeast just beyond onto Laurier. Follow
Laurier northeast, then north, 1.8 km to Concession 5 Road (or Route 500).
Turn right or northeast onto it and the road into the Casselman Sewage
Lagoons is on your right almost immediately.
