Trip Description: Migrating Waterfowl and Open Country Species east of Ottawa.
Farm fields east of Ottawa are mostly harvested by November. This creates much suitable staging habitat for migrating geese and other open country species.
Besides large flocks of geese, species we'll search for include Ross's Goose, Greater White-fronted Goose, Sandhill Crane, Lesser Black-backed Gull, Rough-legged Hawk, Northern Shrike and American Pipit.
With extreme luck, we might find Short-eared Owl, American Golden Plover, Lapland Longspur or a stray from far away.
If time permits, we'll check out the Alfred Lagoons for a variety of ducks and shorebirds.
