Bird Protection Quebec "Field Trip Report" Saturday April 23

A beautiful day for a walk. It started a little on the cool side in the morning with temperatures in the low single digits but warmed up to comfortable levels (10-12 celsius) later in the morning. Clear skies were the order of the day.

A large group of 30 people joined us for the walk. Due to the size of the group we were quite spread out on the trails but everyone seemed to enjoy the day. We were joined on the walk by the previous long time leader of the BPQ walks at Parc Nature du Bois-de-l'île-Bizard, Felix Hilton. Thank you to Felix for showing up and sharing some of his stories from his walks at the park.

We forgot to pick a bird of the day at the post walk list compiling but I would say the Belted Kingfishers seemed to have everyones attention at points.
