Birding MacGregor with Ian Shanahan

leave a comment »

MacGregor Park is a haven for a wide variety of warblers, vireos, water birds and many other species during the spring migration. There are many of these birds still present during the second weekend of the Huron Fringe Birding Festival and having a knowledgeable leader like Ian Shanahan leading two of the events gives you a great opportunity to search some out. Check out Ian’s profile on the festival website http://friendsofmacgregor.org/page/ian-shanahan and you will see that his love of birding will benefit anyone lucky enough to get on one of his hikes.

Come out and see what birds Ian can point out for you as he takes the various trails of MacGregor Park. The warblers are in their best dress at this time of year and can be much easier to spot as they flit from branch to branch searching for insects.

Around the park there are a variety of habitats to suit each warblers needs and Ian will be able to tell you what you could possibly see along the various trails covered on his two events. The birds are at their best in the mornings and both of Ian’s hikes are morning hikes. Get your binoculars, get your questions and enjoy a mornings walk in the park.
