|World’s Greatest Concentration of Gulls: Sunday, December 1 – 7:00 a.m.
This day trip will be a birding outing to the Niagara River, a designated Important Birding Area due to the variety and number of gulls which utilize the river in the late fall. More species can be observed in a day than anywhere else in the world. There will be thousands of gulls consisting of ten or more species. Besides the gulls there will be other water birds, and southern specialties such as Tufted Titmouse. The leaders for this outing will be Martin Parker and Matthew Tobey.
Meet at Tim Horton’s in the Canadian Tire/Sobey’s Plaza on Lansdowne Street West, Peterborough to arrange carpooling from this meeting location and proceed directly to the secondary gathering location at the Adam Beck Generating Station Lookout at Queenston at 10:.00 a.m. For those wishing to spend the weekend at Niagara the secondary meeting location at Queenston gives you the opportunity. The group will spend time here identifying gulls. If you are planning to meet the group at Queenston please advise Martin (705-745-4750) in advance.
Bring a packed lunch, binoculars, and telescope if you have one. A camera may be handy as well. Wear clothes suitable for the weather forecast for the Niagara River area for the day of this excursion.
This outing will end in the Niagara Region in the late afternoon.
