Birding a Hotspot

2023-10-21 @ 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.
