Tuesday, May 24: An afternoon outing along the mighty St. Lawrence River, enjoying and exploring shoreline trails at Farran Bay Park and along Long Sault Parkway. Peak numbers of songbirds (such as warblers, vireos, tanagers, etc.) will be passing through at this time. A lovely suite of waterbird species, including loons, grebes, and ducks will also be present, along with shorebirds, terns, gulls and more!
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 schedule a restroom break every 90-or-so minutes.
Meet-up time and location: 1:00 p.m. at Farran Park and Day Use Area parking area (click linked text)
Duration: 6 -6.5 hours.
Cost: $115 per person (HST-included). I do not have a preference when it comes to payment type; I accept e-transfer, cash and cheque.
