Winter Birding in Ottawa

Wednesday, March 6: This morning we will bird areas west of Ottawa in search of special wintering birds in the National Capital Region! This morning, we will be cruising backroads in search of owls, hawks and eagles; attempt to see Gray Partridge in the Kanata-area; check out Hilda Road feeders for redpolls, sparrows and a possible Red-bellied Woodpecker; and stop along the Ottawa River, at Britannia Filtration Plant, in search of falcons and ducks!

Outing notes: Dress in seasonal and comfortable clothing, and consider wearing layers, as well. Please consider packing winter boots, ice grippers (if you own them), hand & foot warmers, extra socks, coffee/tea, snacks, water, and sunscreen. It’s also a good idea to check the weather forecast for the region in which we will be birding to help you decide on what to wear for the trip!
