Field Trip: Car-Birding Portsmouth Harbour to Lemoine Point

January 17, 2021 @ 8:00 AM 10:00 AM EST

POSTPONED UNTIL AFTER PROVINCIAL LOCKDOWN Registrants will be notified of alternative date.

Leader: Jenny Newton (jennyn1434@gmail.com)

The distance may hardly be 12 km, but this stretch of waterfront boasts many excellent vantage points over a diversity of habitats. New to Kingston and new to birding, Jenny shares her favourite local route. Join her on a tour of where to go, where to park, and what to look for throughout the seasons. This month, keep an eye out for resident red-tailed hawks and bald eagles, winter waterfowl such as long-tailed ducks and red-breasted mergansers, and possible passerines such as snow buntings and northern shrikes. The emphasis of this trip will be on birding locations – an ideal orientation for new or out-of-town KFN members. Members with mobility issues are especially encouraged to participate on this outing, as our tour and birding will take place entirely from our vehicles. Walkie-talkies will be provided to allow communication between participants. This tour is anticipated to take approximately 1.5-2 hours.

Please email the trip leader to register; those without email can call the KFN Field Trips Coordinator at 613-531-4578. The number of vehicles will be limited for safety, so register early! Meeting location will be disclosed upon registration.
