July 13, 2011 White-faced Ibis still present.

Hi Everyone

I checked at 6:00a.m. and the White-faced Ibis was back feeding along the Carp River. While watching it a Great Blue Heron flew in and flushed the ibis which than flew around for a minute before settling back to feeding. There were a number of very vocal Killdeer and Lesser Yellowlegs present too, so be careful approaching the area. good birding, Bruce

From Ottawa take Hwy. 417 west to the Carp Road exit. and turn right (north) and follow Carp Road to the village of Carp. After crossing the bridge take the first right (east) on Rivington Street and follow to the end.

The White-faced Ibis was feeding on small fish, worms and leeches.
