Alive in the Dead of Winter in Point Pleasant Park
Saturday, February 4, 2017 – 10 am to 12 pm
This beginner’s bird walk will meet at the Black Rock Beach concession stand (lower parking lot) of Point Pleasant Park. We'll seek out coastal and forest birds in the park and see and learn about physical and behavioural adaptations that allow birds to survive in the dead of winter. This chilly but fun walk is a great chance to see interesting seabirds and coastal waterfowl of Halifax and, if we are lucky, Purple Sandpipers. Dress warmly and bring binoculars if you have them (a few spare pairs will be available to borrow).
