Saturday, October 22: A full day outing in Renfrew County in search of a wide variety of fall migrants. We will explore a lovely suite of sites during this tour, including sites in Pembroke, Lake Dore, Westmeath and Cobden. Our targets include Sandhill Cranes, birds of prey, shorebirds, ducks, geese, grebes, loons, gulls, pipits, larks, sparrows, thrushes, finches, late warblers and more!
What to pack/What to know: 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. Please pack your spotting scope, if you have one.
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 washroom break every 90-120 minutes.
Activity rating: 2/5.
Meet-up time and location: 9:00 a.m. at Pembroke Waterfront Park
Duration: 8 hours.
Cost: $140 per person (HST-included). I do not have a preference when it comes to payment type; I accept e-transfer, cash and cheque.
