Waterfowl and Early Spring Migrants in the Port Rowan/Long Point Area

Monday, April 1 @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pm

Long Point Provincial Park is the 4th oldest Provincial Park in Ontario, established in 1921. It has been designated as a World Biosphere Reserve. It is also one of the largest Waterfowl Staging areas in North America.

Please join Stewart, who has birded Long Point for over 30 years, in this outing. It is possible to see over 20 Species of Waterfowl, including the possibility of seeing the elusive Eurasian Widgeon, as well as Raptors, Shorebirds, Wading Birds and Sandhill Cranes.

We will also search for early songbird arrivals, which could include Rusty Blackbird, Brown Thrasher, Hermit Thrush, Eastern Phoebe and Sparrow Species.

This outing will proceed RAIN OR SHINE and participants should dress in appropriate gear, including good walking shoes. Most of the terrain will be level and dry, with occasional muddy areas possible. A spotting scope will be available, but feel free to bring a scope if you have one, as well as binoculars, snacks and water.

The excursion will begin at the Birds’ Canada Office in Port Rowan, where washroom facilities are available. There is also a washroom at Old Cut Observatory.

Participants will receive an email from Stewart a few days before the outing. which will give registrants an opportunity to ask any questions about the outing. Look forward to seeing you then!
