        This tour, a linear rather than a loop, can be combined with visits to other southwest areas or, when the Woodridge - Quyon ferry is running, with the Ottawa River West - Quebec linear tour. An entire day could be profitably spent in many of the sites in this section. During migrations, sites like Britannia Conservation Area and Shirleys Bay Dyke could be birded daily with reasonable hope of something different each time; and in early summer, Deschênes Rapids is to be watched carefully.
        This tour begins near downtown Ottawa, a good place to drop off your non-birding family members for the day.
        ** Note: Every Sunday from Victoria Day weekend in May to Labour Day weekend at the beginning of September, the Ottawa River Parkway westbound lanes are closed to motor vehicles between 9 AM and 1 PM. Only bicyclists, in-line skaters, wheelchairs and hikers are allowed. This affects sites 2 through 8, making them easier for cyclists and more difficult by car.
