Ingleside - the bird was seen on the St. Lawrence. It is regionally a rare migrant and locally a very rare migrant. It spent much of its time searching for leeches. Unfortunately it was a one-day wonder.

Ottawa - this bird has been present for over a week and I had the chance to track it down today. We spotted it immediately as we pulled up to a small retention pond. You don't find too many rarities before you even get out of the car.
