Summertime birding in Renfrew County

Saturday, July 3: A full day of summertime birding in beautiful Renfrew County. With Renfrew County’s varied habitat, from grasslands to lakes to forests to fields, we are bound to observe a great variety of birds. By mid summer, family groups of birds will have become a staple; we will encounter plenty of them! We will cover ground from Cobden through to the eastern portion of Barron Canyon Road. We will drive from site to site, and step out of our vehicles and wander along the sides of quiet countryside roads in search of birds.

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.

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: 8:00 a.m. at Veterans Memorial Park in Cobden.

Duration: 8 hours.

Cost: $125 per person (HST-included). I do not have a preference when it comes to payment type; I accept e-transfer, cash and cheque.
