Afternoon birding along the St. Lawrence River

Sunday, March 31: This afternoon we will bird our way east along the St. Lawrence River. Late March is a great time of year to be outside and birding along the shores of lakes and rivers, enjoying a great variety of birds! Expect huge numbers of geese and good numbers of ducks, along with many First-of-Season migrants. Birds of Prey are very much ramping up their migration during this time, so we’ll keep our eyes periodically peeled to the skies throughout the afternoon. We will be birding from Prescott to Cornwall this afternoon, dropping by numerous birding spots along the river. If you’re one to enjoy finding out about “new” birding sites, then this trip could certainly be for you!

Outing notes: Dress in seasonal and comfortable clothing, and consider wearing layers, as well. Please consider packing rubber boots (preferably an insulated pair), windbreaker, rainwear, extra socks, coffee/tea, snacks, water, 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!

Lunch & Dinner: Please pack a field lunch for today’s tour. I am open to scheduling a sit-down group dinner if there’s interest. We’ll chat about that more come tour day.
