Ottawa: Gyrfalcon, Northern Hawk-Owl and Carolina Wren

December 14, 2008

Today, December 14th at 8:15am I observed a gray/brown Gyrfalcon along the Ottawa River at Britannia, Deschenes Rapids. The bird was observed in flight below the rapids and disappeared to the west.

Later we observed the Northern Hawk-Owl that has been present along Grandview Road for the past few weeks. It is easily viewed from the end of Hasting Street.

There was a Carolina Wren at Hampton Park this morning along the edge of the woods and Island Park Estates/ Buell St.

Good birding,

Directions: Northern Hawk-Owl: From Ottawa take Hwy. 417 west to Moodie Drive exit #134. Go north to Carling Ave. and turn left. Watch for Grandview Road on your right. Follow to the end and turn left on Hastings St. and park. If you require additional information, please email me privately.
