BPQ Field Trip Report - Saturday, September 29

16 birders came out to visit a new location for a BPQ field trip today. A fairly new park, Parc des Etang-Antoine-Charlebois in St-Amable. The park has only been open for a few years now. Although a little quiet today, everyone enjoyed visiting a new location that looks very promising for future outings, particular during spring migration. The site has nicely laid out trails snaking through a series of ponds, surrounded by a wide variety of trees and plants. Work is being conducted on additional trails for the future. A very nice morning's walk on a great day, weather-wise. Thanks to everyone who turned out for the trip. Here is our list of 34 species for the day.
