Birdwatching: Winter Birds

Taylor Head Provincial Park, Halifax CountySunday, November 24, 2019 10am to 3pm

On this leisurely walk along the spectacular Headland Trail, we focus on birds that typically overwinter along our coastline. We expect to see lots of Eiders, Grebes, Scoters, Dovekies, Guillemots, Mergansers, Harlequin Ducks, Long–tailed Ducks, and Purple Sandpipers. Hiking on exposed coastline can be challenging, so waterproof boots and seasonally appropriate clothing is recommended. Bring snacks, lunch, and a hot drink. This should be a good warm-up to the Christmas Bird Count. All birders and nature lovers are welcome. Meet at 10 AM at the Park Info Kiosk at the last parking lot. No rain date.
