Bird Protection Quebec's Field Trip Report for Monday May 18th

Westmount Summit/Mt. Royal Cemetery

16 birders participated in this morning's outing. It started out chilly but began to warm up as the Sun broke through. We were pleased to welcome 3 first timers to a BPQ outing. The Summit was quite quiet this morning. The majority of birds this time around were actually seen as opposed to just being heard. A fellow birder reported that a Cooper's Hawk had been seen a few times this morning possibly being one of the reasons for the birds' lack of vocalizing. As the morning wore on, activity picked up and together with a short trip over to Mount Royal Cemetery we were able to complete the day with 46 species.
