Shorebirds at Hanson Brick Quarry

Wednesday, August 10: A one hour stop at Hanson Brick Quarry, in search of shorebirds, herons, ducks, flycatchers, warblers, sparrows and more. Shorebirds often use this quarry as a “middle earth” (between the Ottawa and St. Lawrence rivers) stopover during migration.

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: N/A.
