we just went today up the Searchmont highway and turned off at the Whitman dam and walked up the powerlines. Only saw one bird, there are to many leaves on the trees still, but it was a nice walk.

Yeah, Whitman Dam is exactly 50 kms leading to Domtar Road, which proves to be heaven for bird hunting. Just watch out for the log trucks coming and going up Whitman Dam Road. If you meet them on the cliff, it's a bit spooky.

A nice full day bird drive for us is up Whitman Dam, turn right at Domtar, Right again on Laughing Lake Road, and come out at Ranger Lake Road. It's maybe a 150km trip or so.
Beautiful lakes and swamps, and a plethora of wildlife!!
