Algonquin Park Excursion
•Rayfield Pye will lead.
•This trip is contingent upon good road and weather conditions.
•Meet to car pool at the North parking lot at the Northview Seniors’ Centre at Ritson and Beatrice Roads. (Alternately, meet at the Dwight park entrance at 10:00 AM.)
•Bring a lunch. (Include something for the Canada Jays!)
•We’ll be looking for birds that are more common in the boreal forest. There are good possibilities of Evening Grosbeaks and other northern specialties. Spruce Grouse and Black-backed Woodpecker nest in Algonquin but finding them is the challenge.
•Snow and ice may make walking difficult at times.
•Bring sunscreen if there will be sun. (Sun plus snow reflection can produce a bad burn!)
