Gatineau, secteur Angers : Juvenile Little Blue Heron, first spotted by Bob Cermak this morning from Petrie Island, was relocated this afternoon on the Quebec side of the Ottawa River. It was tucked way back along the northeastern edge of Petite baie Clement. From Hwy 148, follow the signs in the village of Angers. We drove down to the board-map and followed the left trail to the parking area. We walked almost to the end, where we were able to get excellent scope views by looking back in a northeast direction. The bird occasionally disappeared into the reeds. However, for the most part, it was actively feeding along the marsh edge.

Note that this area is very active during hunting season!!! Also, the roads and trails are fairly muddy in some places, and full of serious pot holes. Proceed with caution.

The two juvenile Tundra Swans were on the Ottawa River, visible from Petrie Island beach (Ontario), and also from the river's edge at Maris aux Grenouillettes (Quebec). - Tony Beck
