July 14, 2011 No White-faced Ibis today.

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

Directions: 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.

Both Ben and I checked right up till dusk and no White-faced Ibis. We will give it another check tomorrow morning.
