The Bullock’s Oriole continues to frequent the village of Pakenham feeding and moving around the area. It appears to have somewhat of a routine feeding in a couple of the apple trees and tends to favour the apple tree at the east end of Dalkeith St. The oriole was first seen this morning at around 9:00 a.m. and was observed off and on throughout the day. During my late afternoon visit the oriole along the old railway bed at 2:45 p.m. and back at the apple tree at 3:30 p.m. spending around 5 minutes feeding before departing. Tomorrows forecast is good, sunny and +7 c. Please remember the OFO Birding code of ethics when searching for this rarity.
Directions: From Ottawa take Hwy 417 west to Kinburn Side Road. After exiting turn left and follow to CR 29. Turn left and as you enter the village of Pakenham watch for Waba Road on your right. Turn right and then left on Dalkeith St.
