Napanee Limestone Plain & Camden Lake Provincial Wildlife Area

Saturday, July 8: Today, we will explore Napanee Limestone Plain, Camden Lake Provincial Wildlife Area, and some nearby backroads in search of Loggerhead Shrike, Upland Sandpiper, Eastern Meadowlark, Bobolink, Clay-colored Sparrow, Blue-winged Warbler, Golden-winged Warbler, Scarlet Tanager, both cuckoo species and more!

Guarantees: With birds, there are never guarantees, but the good news is you’ll have a professional guide at the helm with many years of experience searching for and identifying birds. As always, I will endeavour to make the most of each tour, and the philosophy I encourage is to “take whatever the day brings.” 🙂

What to pack/What to know: Please dress for the season and be sure to check on the weather conditions ahead of the tour. We will enjoy a tailgate field lunch during the tour, so please pack a cooler, which you can leave in your vehicle. If it’s sunny for the hike, I recommend wearing a hat in order to protect from the heat of the radiating sunlight. I also recommend using insect repellent, sunscreen, and wearing long pants.

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 find washroom sites (outhouse, gas station, etc.) every 120 min., however, the Great Outdoors will be your best option for today’s tour.

Activity rating: 1-2/5. Today’s tour will feature some relatively short (1-2 km) hikes and also some roadside birding.
