Britannia C.A. & Andrew Haydon Park

Sunday, August 19: Mixing it up a little and opting for an afternoon tour spent searching for warblers, vireos, tanagers, grosbeaks, flycatchers, herons, gulls, waterfowl and more at Britannia Conservation Area and Andrew Haydon Park. Just like a Pelee in May, afternoon birding can be quite productive, as there are fewer people searching for them and they are more at ease in the environments. We will finish the tour by birding along the Ottawa River, at Andrew Haydon Park, as birds fly past, heading to their roost site. Hoping for a nice sunset this evening.

Outing notes: Please be sure to pack snacks, plenty of liquids, electrolyte mix, sunscreen, insect repellent, comfortable and breathable clothing, comfortable hiking shoes, and so on. Note that I will be packing electrolyte mix for the group should you wish to sprinkle some into your water bottle.
