Plan to join us on Thursday, November 1st to take in the spectacle of migratory birds in the Lower Mainland. We will carpool and board the 7:10 am ferry to Tsawwassen, and will birdwatch on the way. Our birding on the Mainland will begin in earnest at the ferry terminal causeway where we will meet members of the Delta Naturalists Club who will help guide us to local birding hot spots. We will travel north to Iona Park and lagoons, typically a rich area for shore and water birds. From there we will visit Terra Nova Park and Dike on the south bank of the Fraser’s North arm. The final stop will be at Boundary Bay. The tide will be high in the afternoon so many species of water birds will be close by. At this location we have also seen several species of raptors including, Barn Owl, Northern Harrier and Rough Legged Hawk. At times Snowy Owls have been seen in the Boundary Bay area.
Don’t forget to pack your lunch, dress for the weather, and bring your binoculars (Bob will bring his spotting scope). We prefer to keep numbers to no more than 15 participants, so be sure to register early at firstname.lastname@example.org. Transportation costs will be shared among the participants.
