Field Naturalists birding field trip to the Lower Mainland

November 5, 2019 @ 7:00 am - 9:30 pm

For those avid birders or those that would like to learn from knowledgeable birders join us for our annual trip on November 5th to the lower mainland to see the fall migration of waterfowl and shorebirds. The date is subject to weather and last year the trip was delayed a few days due to heavy rain on the originally day scheduled. We will be able to make the go/no go decision by the Sunday preceding November 5th.We plan to start the trip by stopping at the base of the ferry causeway at Tsawwassen to view the water birds and shore birds that are frequent there at this time of year. From there we will proceed to Westham Island to see the thousands of Snow Geese that occupy the fields there. We will then go to Blackie Spit in Crescent Beach where we will see shorebirds. The final stop daylight permitting will be the Boundary Bay access on 72nd street in Delta. Those interested in attending please contact pifn@shaw.ca. We intend to carpool to keep the number of vehicles down and transportation costs will be shared equally amongst the participants.
