Spent the morning birding various sites around the Ottawa area. Along Eagleson Road near Brownlee road we observed a flock of 300+ Snow Bunting and 1 Red-tailed Hawk at Hwy. 416 and Bankfield Road. The most interesting area near Ste. Rose just east of Casselman. We observed 4 Snowy Owls, 1 Cooper's, Rough-legged, and 1 Red-tailed Hawk. There was also a large flock of Snow Buntings. The biggest surprise was 4 Song Sparrows , a flock of three and a single birds feeding along the shoulder of the road where the grass was exposed. Along the Rideau River at the Rideau Tennis Club 1 male Barrow's Goldeneye was still present feeding in the remaining small area of open water along with 20+ Common Goldeneye and 200+ Mallards and a few Am. Black Ducks.
