Birding a Hotspot
October 21 @ 8:45 AM – 11:00 AM
Join Drew Monkman for a birding outing to the Lakefield Sewage Lagoons. The
lagoons are the number one birding spot in all of Peterborough County. More
than 12 species of ducks are possible in October. Shorebirds, too, are a good
possibility. We also hope to see a wide variety of sparrows along with numerous
other species like kinglets, pipits, woodpeckers, hawks, and late warblers. We will
be walking one to two kilometres along the gravel road that goes around the
perimeter of the lagoons. Bring binoculars and a spotting scope if you have one.
You might want to brush up on your ducks, too! Because parking at this location
is limited, we will meet at 8:45 am at the Riverview Zoo parking lot on Water
Street and arrange carpooling. Contact Drew after October 6 at
[email protected] to register or if you have questions. If you are
comfortable carpooling, please indicate if you can take others in your vehicle
(how many?) or if you’d prefer being a passenger with someone else.
Accessibility: Easy walking
