Near Baie à Wickens in channel downstream from Ile Boom.

Ottawa River

Quebec, Canada

This is in the channel running past Boom Island from Sand Bay. There are islands between this channel and the main river channel which is more on the Ontario side. There have been eagles nesting on the island nearby for at least the last 12 years but the eagles have not used this nesting site this year.
