BPQ field trip report, Saturday August 27

14 birders joined us for a field trip to the St-Lazare sandpit on this beautiful day, however the birds were very scarce. In the wooded area behind the playground it was exceptionally quiet, so we crossed to the sandpit area again hardly any birds, the water level was very high to only four species of shorebirds. On the way back to the cars we had a very good surprise that was enjoyed by all, an Eastern Bluebird. After that we went on the road just past the Centre de nature les forestiers and again still very quiet. We ended up to a total of 32 species but the company was very good so a nice field trip to start the fall season of "official" field trips. - Jean Demers
