MPFN January Meeting



We're just two weeks away from the January meeting of the Midland-Penetanguishene Field Naturalists
to be held Thurs. Jan. 16, 2020 7:30 PM at the Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre in Midland, our first meeting of the new decade.

Our Guest Speaker: Mike Burrell
"Best Places to Bird in Ontario"

Mike Burrell has worked for the Long Point Bird Observatory, he was the Ontario Important Bird Areas Program Coordinator with Bird Studies Canada, and is now with the Ontario Government's Natural Heritage Information Centre. Over the years Mike and his brother Ken have spent as much time as possible eating, sleeping and breathing birds - chasing them from one corner of the our province to the other (and it's a pretty big province!) Join Mike as he shares some stories and favourite spots and how they decided which would make the cut for their wonderful and very helpful new book, Best Places to Bird in Ontario.

Itís no secret: Ontarioís rich natural landscape and diverse wildlife provides some of the most exceptional birdwatching Canada has to offer, attracting thousands of bird-lovers each year.

In their user-friendly guidebook, the birding brothers Mike and Ken Burrell show us why. Outlining thirty of their personal favorite spots at which to enjoy the provinceís birding, they take readers on an avian tour from Point Pelee to Moosonee, Rainy River to Cornwall. Along the way, they draw from their extensive experience as professional birding guides and field biologists to share insider tips for spotting more than three hundred unique species, advice for exactly when and where to go for the best results, and helpful hints for finding rarely seen birds. Finally, they provide detailed instructions for accessing and enjoying each of the highly recommended sites. Ranging from beloved classics to remote hidden gems, many of these locales are within driving distance of Midland-Penetanguishene; some are even accessible on foot; and each is as spectacular as the last.

With clear maps, beautiful color photos, and a wealth of useful information, Best Places to Bird in Ontario is an invaluable resource that will delight first-time and experienced birders alike.

Mike will have copies of the book available for sale and signing at our January 16th meeting. The cost is $25 which can be paid in cash or by cheque or e-transfer.

Admission to the meeting is free for MPFN members. Visitors and guests $5.
