Kanata Reclamation Wetlands

Thursday, August 30: An afternoon tour exploring one of the city’s newest and most promising birding sites. By late summer, a large number of herons can be seen at this site, comprising at least four, if not five, species. Great Egret and Black-crowned Night-Herons, in particular, show very well here; this is also a site known for its shorebirds, so we’ll carefully scan mud flanks and banks in search of them.

Outing notes: Please be sure to pack snacks, plenty of liquids, electrolyte mix, sunscreen, insect repellent, comfortable and breathable clothing, comfortable hiking shoes, and so on. Note that I will be packing electrolyte mix for the group should you wish to sprinkle some into your water bottle.
