Bucks County Birders Program for Tuesday September 26th, 2017
Frosty Forests and Frozen Fields: Winter Birding in Ontario -- by Wayne Laubscher
Going north in the winter for birdwatching? Yes! It's quality more so than quantity as this program highlights the various far northern specialty bird species that appear in Ontario and even the northeastern U.S. during certain winters. Irruptive species of raptors and finches, wintering northern species of waterfowl and gulls, and the occasional western vagrants will be covered. Where and when to find them and reasons why they show up so far south of their normal range will also be discussed. The emphasis of the program will be on the areas of southern and eastern Ontario and also a few nearby areas in Quebec.
