Bird Protection Quebec "Field Trip Report" Saturday May 7

A gorgeous spring morning at the Lac St-Francois Reserve in Dundee attracted 25 birders. We explored 3 of the trails on the reserve as well as did some birding on a couple of nearby spots along Highway 132. Everyone had a great time, so much so that the trip extended well past noon. The "Bird of the Day" award was equally shared today between the Sandhill Cranes and the Bald Eagles. We completed the day with a total of 52 species. Here is the breakdown (numbers, of course, are rough estimates)

On behalf of co-leader Wayne, I thank everyone who came to explore one of my favourite birding spots in the province. - Sheldon Harvey
