Birding Laurel Creek from Bearinger Road to Columbia Lake

Date:            Tuesday, May 14, 2019

Rain Date:  Wednesday, May 15

Leader:       Dale Ingrey    519-884-3667    ingreyda@hotmail.com

Meeting Time/Place: 8:30 am at Bearinger Road and Pineridge Drive, Waterloo.
Park on Pineridge facing Bearinger. Pineridge is just east of the Westmount Rd./Bearinger intersection.

Duration:   About 2.5 hours.

Description: Although this outing won’t produce as many species as Point Pelee, it is much closer to home and we should still be able to spot a fair number of resident and migratory birds. We will walk Laurel Creek to Columbia Lake and then circle a few storm water ponds in the technology park before heading back to our starting point. If time permits, we will head to the Waterloo Y fields and check for ospreys and grassland birds. Bring water, binoculars, field guide, and scope if you have one. Trail is mostly flat with an occasional slight grade. Washrooms available at Waterloo Y, corner of Laurelwood Drive and Fischer-Hallman.
