Time:    8:00 am

Location:    Meet at the commuter parking lot on Homer Watson Blvd just south of Highway 401.

Duration:    All day

Leader:    David Gascoigne email: theospreynest@sympatico.ca

Phone: 519 725-0866 Cell: 226 747-7299

Description:    We will make numerous stops in this rich birding area, where the variety of species is often dictated by the amount of ice. We should in any event see a wide range of waterfowl, Bald Eagles, Sandhill Cranes, and winter passerines at the Old Cut field station and along the road to the entrance to the Provincial Park. Snowy Owls are always a possibility.

Generally we are able to find washrooms on this outing, but many are closed during COVID so be prepared that Nature’s bathroom may be your only option.

This is a full day’s outing so be sure to pack a lunch and snacks if you need them. Dress according to the weather, bring binoculars, a scope if you have one, a field guide and lots of enthusiasm.

This outing is being offered to those who are fully vaccinated. Registration is required, and the limit will be governed by prevailing COVID regulations.  Participation will be on a first come, first served basis, but with luck freedom on outdoor assembly will be relaxed and no one will have to be disappointed.
