Bird Protection Quebec "Field Trip Report" March 28"

Despite an unusually cold temperature for this date early in the morning, we were 19 birders at the meeting point (Parc des Rapides). Highlights were a sad duo of Great–blue Herons with ice caught in their feathers; a single Wild Turkey at the top of a tree (île aux Chèvres); a Red-winged Blackbird which cheered up the few people who heard him sing and a Raccoon that was sleeping in a tree trunk of which we could see only the angelic face …

Warm thanks to all who came!
