        Site Description and Birding Information: This site has a good variety of habitat available, from swampy woodland at the east end of Jacques Cartier to scrubland behind the row of houses along Jacques Cartier. It appears to be an old dump site, now designated a park. A coverup of sorts. But nature isn't fussy.
        Ottawa River East: Quebec Route Directions: To visit our next site on this route, Kettle Island, just stay parked where you are and take a boat or canoe across the channel.
