Ottawa’s Greenbelt Marshlands

Thursday, June 6: A morning spent exploring some of Ottawa’s most beautiful marshland habitats. We will begin our day by exploring Bruce Pit. Our targets for the morning include Least Bittern, American Bittern, Black-crowned Night-Heron, Green Heron, Great Egret, Great Blue Heron, Virginia Rail, Sora, Common Gallinule, Marsh Wren, Willow Flycatcher and much more 🙂

Outing notes: Dress light and seasonal, and consider wearing quick-dry clothing, as well. Please consider packing rubber boots and rainwear, extra socks, insect repellent, mosquito head net/jacket, plenty of water, electrolyte mix (I will supply this, as well), coffee/tea, nutritious snacks, and sunscreen. It’s also a good idea to check the weather forecast for the region in which we will be birding to help you decide on what to wear for the trip!
