Chignecto Naturalists’ Club – Spring Birds Field Trip

May 6, 2018

The Chignecto Naturalists’ Club has scheduled the first field trip of the spring season for Sunday, 6 May. This trip will be led by wildlife biologist Andrew MacFarlane to observe spring birds and has three options to see birds at Cape Jourimain, Cape Tormentine and along the Amherst Shore in NS. Details as follows:

WHAT: Spring birding trip to Cape Jourimain, Cape Tormentine and along the Amherst Shore with the following options:
OPTION ONE: Early morning birding at Cape Jourimain and Cape Tormentine starting at 7:00 AM
OPTION TWO: Birding along the Amherst Shore of NS starting at 9:00 AM
OPTION THREE: Combination of options one and two.

OPTION ONE and THREE: Meet at the Cape Jourimain Nature Centre at 7:00 AM, Sunday 6 May and join Andrew in search of early morning sea birds.
OPTION TWO: For those who are not early risers, meet behind the Sackville Post Office at 8:20 AM on Sunday, 6 May for car pooling and an 8:30 departure for Baie Verte or meet Andrew at the Baie Verte Community Hall for a 9:00 AM departure for the Amherst Shore portion of the trip.

BRING: This trip will go into the afternoon so as well as your enthusiasm bring water and a lunch and a hot drink if you wish. Also bring field guides, binoculars and a scope if you have one. There will be no difficult walking but as usual it is recommended to wear sturdy footwear. It may be cooler along the coast than inland so be prepared to bring layered clothing.

MORE INFORMATION: Contact Andrew at 506 536 4922 or Bruce at 506 536 4108.

We look forward to seeing you on the 6th. All are welcome for all or any of the options.
