Summer Series of Birding Field Trip #3 - Saturday, July 11

For this week's Summer Series field trip we're going to repeat a field trip that we did back in January...this time though with obviously more pleasant weather...we hope!.

On January 24th we did a trip which we called "Urban Birding" where we visited a combination of industrial and residential areas looking for urban birds. It was a fun outing with some interesting birds and locations. At the time we discussed doing this again, but at a different time of year. So here we are! Here are the details:

DATE: Saturday, July 11
TIME: 8:00 am
MEETING SPOT: The Costo Parking Lot at the corner of Bridge and Mill Street in the Pointe-St-Charles area of Montreal. 
See map at

DURATION: Half day – combination driving and walking trip

Details:. We will leave the parking lot and drive first to Parc de la Cité-du-Havre close to the Concorde Bridge. We'll then head back to the Technoparc and CN rail yards along the Bonaventure Expressway before continuing on to some final stops on Nuns' Island. We’ll be looking for birds residing in an urban setting in parks, residential and industrial areas, and along the St-Lawrence River waterfront.
