CANCELLED *** Hamlin Beach State Park Field Trip
March 21, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
March 17, 2020 – Given the current directives and health concerns stemming from the Covid-19 virus, RBA and the Field Trip Committee has decided to cancel the following field trips and events:
Saturday, March 21: Hawk Watch
Thursday, March 26: Birds & Brews
Saturday, March 28: Owl Woods
The next Field Trip, scheduled for Friday, April 10 to see Woodcocks, is 28 days away. We will assess whether to hold that trip, as well as future trips, as the time grows nearer. Please be advised, however, that trips in the foreseeable future will be cancelled until further notice.
In the meantime, please do go out on your own, enjoy fresh air and migrating birds as Spring unfolds! The sooner we all do our part to not spread this virus, the sooner we can all enjoy birding together again!
Stay well and safe,
We will gather at Braddock Bay Park and drive to Hamlin Beach State Park where we will be looking for migrating waterfowl as we work our way back east. We will stop at Owl Woods in search of migrating owls. We will end at the Braddock Bay Hawk Watch in hopes of spotting Rough-legged and Red-shouldered Hawks and Bald Eagles. Dress warmly as the lakeshore can be cold this time of year.
Meet at 9:00 a.m. at the Braddock Bay Park main parking lot. Use the East Manitou Road exit from the Ontario State Parkway.
Extra spotting scopes would be very helpful.
