Join fellow bird watchers in the Rideau Lakes area

Introduction

The Rideau Lakes Birding Group gets together throughout the year to enjoy a morning of bird watching. It’s a great way to see the birds of the region and to discover the forests, trails, back roads and parks of the beautiful Rideau Lakes region. The goals of the group are to learn about birds and to have fun. We are always pleased to welcome new members and welcome all levels – from beginner to expert. The outings are geared to those who have weekday daytime availability. The group started in 2013 and is associated with the Rideau Lakes Township.

For more information about the group, or to find out when the next outing will take place, please contact Kerstin Ring.

How It Works

Group members meet at a pre-determined location to start their morning of bird watching. In the late spring/summer/early autumn, the meeting time is 7:30 a.m., the rest of the year it is 8:00 a.m./ 8:30 a.m. The group enjoys a refreshment break mid-morning at a local restaurant for about 45 minutes and then resumes birding until about 12 p.m. If there is more than one car on the tour, walkie-talkies are used to communicate between the cars. The passengers in a car pay the driver $7 each for gas or $10 if a long distance is traveled. A reminder email is sent to the group two days before the outing detailing meeting location and areas to be explored.
