NS Bird Society: Mid-summer Birdwatching Walk

Taylor Head Provincial Park, Halifax CountySaturday, August 3, 2019 9am to 2pm

This will be a joint trip with the Friends of Taylor Head and the Nova Scotia Bird Society, and it will be offered in two stages. In the morning, we walk the moderate level Spry Bay Trail and in the afternoon, there is the option of continuing on the more challenging trail to the headland. At Powers Pond, we will look for nesting and brooding Common Terns, Cormorants, Eiders, Willets, and Spotted Sandpipers. Migrating Whimbrels and other waders may also be seen here, at the headland, and elsewhere along the Headland Trail. Bring a hearty lunch and water. Terrain is rugged, so sturdy footwear is recommended. Dress for weather conditions. Meet at 9 AM at the Park Info Kiosk at the last parking lot. No rain date.
