Thursday, March 29: Today we will bird the open fields east of Casselman in search of Snowy Owl, Rough-legged Hawk, Red-tailed Hawk, Northern Shrike and other birds of prey. Snow Buntings, Horned Larks and Lapland Longspurs are likely to be seen in good numbers today. Spring migrants such as Eastern Meadowlark may also be seen. We will visit the Lafleche dump, where we will scan for numerous gull species.
