Wednesday, February 28: Birders will be introduced to new backroads and new birding spots in winding, countryside route that has us finishing in beautiful Ivy Lea along the St. Lawrence River. Early migrants such as Horned Lark and blackbirds, Northern Shrike, Red-bellied Woodpecker, and plenty of waterfowl are the expected targets.
Outing notes: Here are some ideas of what to pack and what to wear during our outing. A field lunch, some snacks, water, a thermos full of your preferred hot beverage, hand and foot warmers, extra socks, sturdy and warm footwear, windbreaker, layered clothing, lens cloth, lip balm, sunscreen and favoured field guides.
Lunch & Dinner: I am open to organizing a sit-down lunch that we would have right after the tour is finished.
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 416 carpool lot at Bankfield/416.
