        Site Description and Birding Information: This site was one of the few places where Eastern Towhee could be found on the Quebec side of the Ottawa with regularity in recent years. Watch and listen on the north side of the road about 200 to 300 meters east of Klock. A newly built sub-division on the south side of this stretch of road may force the towhees to find less disruptive surroundings.
