A Birding Hotspot Tour – Members Only
2022-10-15 @ 8:00 AM – 10:30 AM
The Otonabee gravel pit has been a top “hot spot” with local birders for years. Meadows, forests, and the ponds from the former gravel extraction provide the variety of habitats that make this spot so good for birding. Although late in the season, there will be year-round birds, the possibility of some late migrants and new arrivals from up north that spend the winter in the area. Regardless, this is a beautiful spot for a fall walk. Steve Paul, an experienced birder, will lead this outing to familiarize you with the site and provide information on good times to visit to see various species and where. Dress for the weather of the day with rubber boots if you have them and bring your camera and binoculars. There is poison ivy at the site to be mindful of. Register after October 5 by contacting [email protected] Further details will be provided to those who register.
