Returning Waterfowl on the Otonabee
March 1 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Sunday, March 1, 2020, 1:00 p.m.
With the lengthening days in March and hours of sunlight the spring migration is underway. This afternoon trip will visit various locations along the Otonabee River to discover the returning waterfowl. It is anticipated there will be Common Goldeneyes 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 trip will also make a visit to the Bald Eagle nesting site in the Lakefield area to see is the adults are occupying the nest this year. Steve Paul and Cathy Douglas will be leading this annual late winter outing.
Meet at 1:00 p.m. in the parking lot of the Peterborough Zoo. Bring binoculars and telescope if you have one. Dress for the weather forecast for the day of the outing. An afternoon break in Lakefield is planned.
