Murphys Point Provincial Park

Saturday, June 26: Today, we will be exploring the very best of the Rideau Lakes region in search of some lovely birds such as the Scarlet Tanager, Indigo Bunting, Eastern Towhee, Cerulean Warbler, Blue-winged Warbler, Golden-winged Warbler, Yellow-billed Cuckoo, Yellow-throated Vireo, Blue-headed Vireo,  Red-shouldered Hawk and more. All sorts of interesting plants and animals will be likely be observed during this tour!

What to pack: Please dress for the season, and be sure to take a look at the forecast for the region in which we will be birding a few days out from the tour. Please pack a cooler with the food and drink of your choice. Pack your optical and photographic equipment, as well as your field guides should you wish to consult them during the tour.  Although they are not mandatory, I recommend packing a mask for whenever we might be birding in tight spaces. Please note that there is a $17 entry fee to enter this provincial park (for those who are not annual permit carriers).

eBird Checklists: I will take care of all of the checklists for the day, and share them with you when the tour is complete. Your eBird statistics will automatically update when you accept the checklist. If you are not an eBird user, that is perfectly fine; I will email the checklists when I arrive home. You’ll be able to browse through the sightings list without having to be an eBird user.

Washrooms: I will do my best to schedule a washroom break every 90-120 minutes. However, clients can, at any time, use the great outdoors as a rest stop, too!

Meet-up time and location: Car Pool parking lot near Murphys Point, at 8:00 a.m.

Duration: 8 hours.

Cost: $125.00 per person (HST-included). I do not have a preference when it comes to payment type; I accept e-transfer, cash and cheque.

Registration for this event is now closed.
