Spring migration is underway. The harbinger of spring, Red-winged Black Birds, can already be heard calling, birds of prey are pushing north and waterways are starting fill with water fowl. Join MVFN each Wednesday morning in April at 6:30 a.m. for a guided walk to see who has arrived.
Wed. April 7 – 38 Carrs Street, Almonte
Wed. April 14 – Wolf Grove Road and 12th Concession to Taylor Lake
Wed. April 21 – 561 Wolf Grove Road
Wed. April 28 – Mississippi River Walk, 73 Nedham Street, Carleton Place
This is a great opportunity to see and hear local species. Each walk will traverse a variety of habitats to ensure a good variety of birds. The walks are a nice introduction for beginning birders and a reunion with old friends for our experienced birders.
Everyone is welcome but registration is required so an individual email for each walk will be sent the week before providing a link to a registration form. All COVID protocols will be followed.
To see the results for last year, check out this article on the MVFN website. Michel Gauthier and Ken Allison walk the routes to record what they saw and heard.
