Despite the continuous snow and freezing conditions, 22 stalwarts found 24 
species of bird in Ottawa today.  The highlights included a juvenile male 
Harlequin on the Ottawa River that was hard to see at first, but finally 
drifted close enough for us to get a good look. We tried for an hour to find 
our second target,  a Summer Tanager, but without success.  Then we moved to 
the Rideau River and found our third target, a male Barrow's Goldeneye.  We 
also had superb views of a Cooper's Hawk and, at least, one Cedar Waxwing 
among the Bohemian Waxwings.

Thanks to all for their cooperation.
