Andrea Warner and Ron Holmes will be our guides for a trip to the ever-popular birding sights in southern BC borderlands around Reifel Bird Sanctuary. Feed chickadees from your hand, observe waterfowl and their iridescent plumage at close range, and look for Saw-Whet Owls. Meet to arrange car pools at 7:30 am across from the Cook Road exit/Highway 99 Starbucks. This is just south of Cook Road on Highway 99. Come early enough to buy your coffee and use the restroom and leave by 8 am. Yes, it will barely be light when we leave but will be morning when we get to our destinations. Bring appropriate ID for the border crossing – either a passport or an enhanced driver’s license – a crossing-friendly lunch, and a few dollars for the entry fee and bird feed at Reifel. There may be additional stops for any special birds reported in nearby areas. Here’s the link to the bird sanctuary to check out the information they provide (rules, bird checklist, etc.): http://www.reifelbirdsanctuary.com/index.html. Please contact leaders: Ron Holmes, email@example.com or Andrea Warner, firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend.
