Map of the Greenland area
Site Description and Birding Information: This area can be done as a 7.8 km loop, following Torwood Road to Armtage Road and return to Vance's Side Road via Greenland Road. Armtage Road and its southwestern extention, Ironwood Road, are lined with cottages some of which have feeders. The northeast end of Greenland Road provides a good view of the Ottawa River. A Red-bellied Woodpecker was found at the Ottawa River end of Greenland Road on Nov. 5-6, 2009. A half kilometer from the end of Greenland Road, Rock Forest Road cut across the woods to Armtage Road. This road has a excellent feeding station near the Armtage end. Pileated Woodpecker workings are common.
