Birding Laurel Creek from Bearinger Road to Columbia Lake
May 14 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am
Rain Date: Wednesday, May 15
Leader: Dale Ingrey 519-884-3667 email@example.com
Meeting Time/Place: 8:30 am at Bearinger Road and Pineridge Drive, Waterloo.
Park on Pineridge facing Bearinger. Pineridge is just east of the Westmount Rd./Bearinger intersection.
Duration: About 2.5 hours.
Description: Although this outing won’t produce as many species as Point Pelee, it is much closer to home and we should still be able to spot a fair number of resident and migratory birds. We will walk Laurel Creek to Columbia Lake and then circle a few storm water ponds in the technology park before heading back to our starting point. If time permits, we will head to the Waterloo Y fields and check for ospreys and grassland birds. Bring water, binoculars, field guide, and scope if you have one. Trail is mostly flat with an occasional slight grade. Washrooms available at Waterloo Y, corner of Laurelwood Drive and Fischer-Hallman.
