Okay ... All these birds I've seen (and most of them I've photographed) IN Ottawa, usually by the Ottawa River along the parkway.

I don't know the proper names of all the birds I've seen but for those I do:

Canadian Geese (lots of 'em!)
Mallard Ducks
American Black Ducks
Wood Ducks

Ring-billed gulls and other 'shore birds' ...

Blue Heron
Black Crowned Night Heron
Pilated Woodpecker
a couple of unidentified woodpeckers (hairy and/or downy)!

house sparrows/finches
canaries/orioles (same bird, many names! It's basically yellow)
Black-capped chickadees
black birds
Red Winged Black Birds
Common Grackles
Mourning Doves
Gray Catbirds

Common Goldeneye; small flock drakes and hens.

Scaups; small flock drakes and hens.


Black-backed gulls,
Red-breasted merganser
