Wednesday, January 17: This morning we will sites in Frontenac County, north of Sharbot Lake. Black-backed Woodpecker, Red Crossbill and possibly even American Three-toed Woodpecker are our targets for the day. Other incidentals include Northern Shrike, Ruffed Grouse and perhaps also Northern Goshawk (good habitat here). Because they are our targets for the day, I will allow plenty of time for photos of Black-backed Woodpeckers if we should happen to come across one.
Outing notes: Here are some ideas of what to pack and what to wear during this field outing. Insulated winter boots and snow pants are useful items to pack. Please pack some snacks, seed for birds if you wish to feed them, plenty of water, lens cloth, lip balm, sunscreen, and favoured field guides. Please dress warmly and wear layered clothing.
Activity Scale: Out of five stars, with five being a strenuous day, this trip sits at a 1 out of 5 for most birders. Very short walks throughout the day, but we will mostly be birding by car.
Meet at 9:00 AM at the General Store in Sharbot Lake, right off Highway 7: https://www.google.ca/maps/place/Sharbot+Lake+General+Storefirstname.lastname@example.org,-76.681162,252m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m13!1m7!3m6!1s0x4cd2541fafde82fb:0x6a0467f6e108477b!2sArdoch+Rd,+Ontario!3b1!8m2!3d44.8660607!4d-76.7939738!3m4!1s0x4cd2f66b0acabdcb:0x4b3d237cfda8ad60!8m2!3d44.7983569!4d-76.6794386
