Wednesday, February 28: Birders will be introduced to new backroads and new birding spots along a 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.
Duration: 4 hours
