Connecting people with nature in Ontario's Mississippi Valley

Bonus Early Morning Bird Walk Wednesday May 1

With the late spring this year, MVFN is very pleased to invite you to join Ken Allison at his and Ruth’s beautiful country property at 561 Wolf Grove Road from 6:00 – 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, May 1 to see more newly arriving birds, as well as other fauna and flora.

With Ken’s enthusiastic expertise in many different aspects of nature to help us, we will see some emerging flora, such as hepaticas, which are already in bloom, and hopefully, some spring beauties and Dutchman’s breeches, as well as getting to know the many species of trees on their property.

We hope to see and/or hear a Hermit Thrush, Barred Owl, Red-shouldered Hawk, Wood Duck, Hooded Merganser, Swamp Sparrow, Pileated Woodpecker, both Ruby-crowned and Golden-crowned Kinglets and Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers drumming. With luck, the Yellow-rumped Warbler will have arrived back!

To get to Ken & Ruth’s place, travel west on Wolf Grove Road, past Concession #8 and the Auld Kirk Cemetery (on your right). The laneway is the second on the left at the top of the hill, #561.
