May 16, 2017 - Beaver Bank Lake Trail- Woodland Migrants - Beginning Birders –

Leader: David Currie phone: 902-476-6616 and This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Time 7:00AM to 11:00AM - Meet at the trail head at #1901 Beaver Bank Rd.

This is only the forth year for this hike, and is a great way to start the day with a relatively easy walk along a wood road toward a Scout camp on the banks of Beaver Bank Lake. The trip into the camp is about 3km and at a time of year that migrant birds should be in full song. Bring your cameras and binoculars, fly repellant, and sturdy hiking boots or shoes.

After the trip and depending on time there will be another stop nearby to check on a normally active Cliff Swallow nesting area.
