On December 6 at 9:00 at Hope Bay join us for our winter bird identification walk. This is a great opportunity for you to tune up your winter birding skills in preparation for the upcoming Christmas Bird Count and don’t forget to bring your binoculars. There will likely be lots of birds to identify in the bay and along the roadside in the hedgerows. Later we may travel to Magic Lake where we can sort out the differences between Ring-necked Duck, American Wigeon, Common Merganser and our smallest duck, the Bufflehead. You will be introduced to an excellent birding app called “Sibley Birds” that allows you to compare 2 different species, side-by-side. This tool is often very useful in the field. Please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend.
