What: Presqu'ile Park Warblers and Whimbrels Weekend
When: Sat May 21 2016
Time: 6:30 AM
Where: Lighthouse parking lot inside Presqu'ile park
Bring: Camera, tripod, long lens, close up or macro, park fees


It is that time of year again :)

This is the weekend that the "Friends of Presqui'le" do their bird banding program.
They will have guide walks around the area and will point out and identify various birds.
Also in the surrounding woods there may be trilliums, trout lillies and other wild flowers.
They usually have a BBQ at the light house later on at around 11:00am and if people want to we can go to Vito's for supper :)
The program runs from 6:30AM till 4:00PM.
There are also some beautiful walking trails here.


See this site for info about the park.

The park is approx 145km from Toronto. About 1h45min to 2h.

I think the wife and little one are visiting her mother in the states that weekend. If so I'm in and would have 2-3 spots in the car theoretically. If anyone is looking for a ride, pm me.

Well.......the birds get up early so we have to be there for them :)
The early bird gets the worm and the early photographer gets the bird !
As long as you are there for the BBQ :)

Hey

Sorry I couldn't make it this year. Probably the first one I have missed in a couple of years.

Yes we missed you out there. Everyone thought I had the big lens :)
The weather was nice and food at Vito's was great. Saw a few new birds and hopefully got some good shoots of others.
Will post some photos asap.

My hat is off to bird photographers. This is not an easy thing to do. Fun, but not easy :)
Some shots from the day.
