Outing Snippet

What a wonderful Spring birding day with EOB clients, new & old! We managed to see many beautiful bird species today, as well as pine martens. The drive to Algonquin provided an equally-rich birding experience, as well; Renfrew County was on fire! We managed to tally our first warbler species of the season: a Yellow-rumped Warbler. Ruby-crowned Kinglet was also a bit on the early side, and as such, was a pleasant surprise! We narrowly missed out on a dream encounter with a young bull moose while hiking along Bat Lake trail; a hiker alerted us to the moose’s presence. Please see below for all checklist details 🙂
