An enthusiastic group of about 45 birders braved sub-freezing temperatures, strong winds, frequent heavy snow squalls, and snow/ice-covered trails to observe 54 species of birds today throughout the Highway 60 Corridor. Record high flood levels that resulted in the breaching of Opeongo Road at Costello Picnic Grounds meant that we could not go to that traditional hotspot, but alternative locations produced some interesting birds.
A few keen birders lingering after the late afternoon official end of the trip observed the first Barn Swallow.
