My total Renfrew bird list ended up at 163, with the last bird being a Merlin flying across the highway. Some highlights were a lot of Olive-sided Flycatchers (I entered 34 into eBird, a few of those are probably repeats though), a Black-backed Woodpecker that checked us out on a point count, a few Gray Jays, the aforementioned Carolina Wren and House Finch, and probably the bird of the month - a singing Hooded Warbler on the way to the point counts one morning, which is apparently a first for the Upper Ottawa Valley.
Another highlight that I forgot to mention was the variety of mammals we saw in the Research Forest! I got several lifers including Pine Marten, Fisher, Long-tailed Weasel, Star-nosed Mole and Red-backed Vole. In addition to those we also saw Moose, White-tailed Deer, Black Bear and the usual assortment of chipmunks and squirrels. The Fisher was the real excitement as it came right up to us (maybe 10-15 feet away) while we were on a bird survey (wearing bug jackets) before realizing that we were humans and high-tailing it back into the woods.
I have some more insect photos to go through and identify but here are some of the better shots from the trip so far! Unfortunately my camera battery was dead on my day in Eastern Ontario so I missed a few good photo-ops there...
A flock of Brant in Deep River (different to the ones in Quebec, which were about a week later)
Baby White-tailed Deer
Common Nighthawk threat display
The reason for the display
She calmed down for another pic before we left
Eastern Pine Elfin
Broad-winged Hawk that flew across the road about 2 inches in front of my bumper - luckily it was not the best of roads and I was only going about 20km/h so managed to stop in time!
'Sunburst' Spruce - genetic mutant of White Spruce
Luna Moth on the office door one morning
Olive-sided Flycatcher sketch I did - we saw (or more accurately heard) lots of them!
