adult, outside normal range
Ottawa - A new bird for the region. This little guy gave me a hard time. It was first spotted while I was watching the Red Phalarope a couple of days ago. I I dashed about 10 km to a waiting throng of birders but despite a lengthy search it wasn't seen while I was there. This morning I had the bird all to myself for 90 minutes. It was still very elusive but I had a number of good shooting opportunities.
Ahmad Shah: Wow ! Fantastic find, superb shot .
BrianMorin: I had made two additional attempts unsuccessfully in previous days so this was a great bird to finally locate. It has now been seen by dozens of eager observers. Because viewing is only to the south at this site, overcast conditions presented uniform light for me to work with, far better than back light.
