Sightings for Wednesday December 4

Alymer: The male Black-throated Gray Warbler (Paruline à joues grises) found yesterday has been located again (9:25 am) this morning in basically the same area as yesterday. It is in Aylmer Quebec which is just across the Ottawa River from Ottawa Ontario.
It is in the bushes close to the river opposite (south of) the pedestrian bridge at the west end of Vanier St in Aylmer.

Directions: from Ottawa east exit from hwy 417 at Island Park Dr and follow Island Park Dr north to the Champlain bridge. From Ottawa west (or 416 ro 417 east) exit from hwy 417 at Carling Ave and follow Carling east then left (north) on Island Park Dr (I think you can make a left there!) and follow Island Park Dr north to the Champlain bridge. Continue (north) on the Champlain bridge then west on the lower Aylmer road (Ch. d'Aylmer) then south on Ch. Vanier. Drive to the Ottawa River. When Vanier turns to the right (west) follow Vanier all the way to the west end. Park and walk west onto the pedestrian bridge. The bird has been moving around south of that bridge, either low in the bushes at the river edge or higher in the trees mid way between the bridge and the river.
Good luck, - Bob

I just missed the BTG. Warbler this morning about 11am. Two other birders saw it near the bicycle path about 300-400 meters east of Vanier.
