Winter birding in Ottawa

Thursday, December 8: TBD

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. For winter tours, it’s a good idea to pack extra socks, as well as foot and hand warmers. Be sure to pack ice grippers/cleats in case the walking paths are icy. Please pack a full cooler with the food and drink of your choice. Lastly, pack your optical and photographic equipment, and also 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 min throughout the tour.

Activity rating: 1/5.

Meet-up time and location: TBD — the tour will be constructed based on gleanings from local reports within a week of the tour date.

Duration: 4 hours.

Cost: $75 per person (HST-included). I do not have a preference when it comes to payment type; I accept e-transfer, cash and cheque.
