Please join Stewart in an exciting day of birding in the Long Point Provincial Park! The focus will be on land migrants vs waterfowl in this excursion. We will begin our birding adventure in the Old Provincial Park, then move over to the Old Cut Bird Banding Station (there is a bathroom there!!), and we will finish with an easy hike in the Park itself, exploring the wooded areas.

Some of the possible early Warblers we could see are the Kentucky Warbler, Blue Winged Warbler, and Hooded Warbler amongst others! Other notable birds could include Red Headed Woodpecker, Scarlett Tanager, Indigo Bunting, Blue Headed Vireo and other interesting species!

This outing will last until 12:00 and and then we will break for lunch. Participants may choose to bring their own lunches and find a picnic table…or if enough of us wish to dine together, Stewart can make a reservation for lunch in Port Rowan. Please dress for the weather, and bring comfortable walking shoes and your binoculars. The outing will proceed rain or shine. Car pooling is encouraged as parking in the Long Point Area is limited. There is one bathroom at Old Cut but we will NOT be starting there, so I recommend that participants use facilities enroute.

Registration is required by contacting Stewart directly. The outing is limited to 15 people.
