BPQ Field Trip to Pointe-aux-Prairies field, November 7th

On a cloudy skies and around 1C Clémence and I were very pleased, 18 birders showed up, we were very surprised. We were there Wednesday and there were not many birds, so we weren't very hopeful. So we walked all morning in the very humid temperature and with 18 pair of eyes we found 25 species. I think that the bird of the day is a Northern Mockingbird for everybody, moving a lot but everybody got a good look at it.
