Tim Horton's, Sobey's Plaza
Join us for the PFN’s bi-annual outing to Amherst Island at the eastern end of Lake Ontario, near Kingston. We will cross to the island by ferry and visit various locations to look for wintering owls as well as hawks and eagles. The trip will leave from Peterborough at 7 a.m. and travel to the ferry terminal to take the 9:30 a.m. ferry to the island. Martin Parker is the PFN leader for this outing and will be assisted by Mark Read of the Kingston Field Naturalists. Mark is very familiar with the island and this winter’s visitors.
Meet in the parking lot adjacent Tim Horton’s in the Sobey’s/Canadian Tire Plaza on Lansdowne Street at 7:00. We will car pool to the island. Bring a packed lunch, binoculars and telescope if you have one. Wear clothes suitable for the weather forecast on the day of the outing.
Accessibility: easy to moderate, some walking through snow.
