Behind Ottawa Airport – Sparrows and More

While I’ve had a great time at Mud Lake this year, but I decided to try a few areas, I’d wanted to bird but never had.

One of those areas was Leitrim, Bowsville and High Roads, an area that has most of the species of sparrows that can be found in Ottawa.

It area didn’t disappoint, I had lovely views of:

Was a great time, with lots of birds heard and seen.
Thanks to Mike Cummings for showing me this spot.

Ciao for now…
