Returning Waterfowl on the Otonabee – Members Only

2021-03-14 @ 1:00 PM 3:00 PM

With the increasing hours of sunlight and lengthening days in March, the spring migration is underway. This trip will visit various locations
along the Otonabee River from Little Lake to Lakefield to discover the returning waterfowl. It is anticipated there will be Common Golden-eyes
and Bufflehead doing their spring courtship rituals. Common Merganser, with the males in their bright spring plumage, will also be present. Other species are also possible.

The number of participants on this trip will be determined by the public health guidelines and restrictions at the time and the discretion of each leader. Due to the popularity of this outing, the participants will be split into three groups starting from different locations to reduce the number of cars in any one group. Those registering will be assigned to a leader and meeting spot. Each group will follow their own schedule of stops. Martin Parker, Steve Paul and Cathy Douglas will be leading this annual late winter outing. Bring binoculars and telescope if you have one. Dress for the weather forecast for the day of the outing.

To register for the 10 a.m. start time, contact Cathy at cddouglas77@gmail.com For the afternoon start, contact Martin at mparker19@cogeco.ca
