Birding in the Petawawa Research Forest

Saturday, May 28, 2022

Meet at 9 a.m. at the parking lot on Clouthier Road just off Highway 15. (Keen birders might want to come earlier and get a head start.)

We should be at the peak of spring migration and find several wood warblers and other jewels such as the Scarlet Tanager. We will drive throughout the PRF to visit various habitats and stop, listen, and look.

Christian Renault (Pembroke Area Field Naturalists) and Robin Cunningham will lead.
