The two BRANT continue at Andrew Haydon Park, located around the western duck pond. Two CACKLING GEESE were also found with a little difficulty amid many dozens of CANADA GEESE on the western pond. On the Ottawa River, viewable with binoculars or a scope, three SURF SCOTERS and one BLACK SCOTER were visible from shore.
Before leaving the park, I saw an adult NORTHERN GOSHAWK fly overhead, heading westward, with several crows in hot pursuit.
DIRECTIONS: Andrew Haydon Park is on Carling Avenue in the west end of Ottawa; the entrance is at Carling and Holly Acres.
