Birding Britannia Conservation Area August 29, 2009

Despite the sometimes heavy rain there were pockets of warbler activity this morning along the ridge at Britannia. Highlights include a Canada, Magnolia, Nashville, Palm, Black-throated Green Warbler and Philadelphia Vireo. On Mud Lake there were numerous Wood Duck, Mallard, American Black Duck and an immature Black-crowned Night-Heron. Water levels are still high along the Ottawa River but some exposed rocks at Britannia Rapids had over 130 Great Black-backed Gulls resting.
