Spring Birding at Thickson Wood, Lynde Shores Conservation Area and Cranberry Marsh
Leader: Ray Blower
If I had only one day in the spring to go birding, this is where I would go. These locations provide a wide variety of habitats including mature forest, meadows, swamps, marshes, old fields and Lake Ontario and its shoreline. The result is a diverse collection of bird species, especially during spring migration. Scheduling on the Sunday of the Victoria Day holiday weekend has resulted, so far, in trouble -free driving to and from these Whitby birding hot spots. Bring a lunch, water, hat, sunscreen, binoculars, etc.
Call Ray Blower, 519-853-0171, for starting location and times.

Toronto Ornithological Club outings
Winter/Spring 2017

Watch for our Spring Newsletter for
Monday Night Walks 2017

 To Be Announced – Don’t miss out on the fun!

We’ll have one or more outings every month throughout the year, guided by the most experienced naturalists in our club. The outings will be fairly casual affairs, meaning… you won’t have a lot of advance notice. We’ll announce the details at each meeting, often along the lines of “hey I’m going out to do/see this next weekend, anyone want to come?”

We’ll follow-up with a club email, and post the details here, on Facebook, and on Twitter.

Don’t miss out on the fun! If you can’t make a club meeting, make sure you  sign up for our newsletter to stay in the loop.

Note: For liability reasons, you must be a fully paid member of the Halton/North Peel Naturalist Club to participate in our field outings. Please join!
