Viewing Egrets at Deschênes
On August 16, it’s
“Wednesdays of the Great Egret” at Deschênes Rapids, an invitation by
the Club des ornithologues de l’Outaouais (COO). For the seventh summer,
this weekly outing has for its purpose to observe and number Great
Egrets as they return for the night in their heronry and dormitory (on
Conroy Island) in Deschênes Rapids. We’ll be at the belvedere along the
biking path. Your expert will be Rodolphe Dubois. The rapids at sunset,
these elegant white wading birds and the many other birds on the move
will give an impressive show. An activity for all.
Rendez-vous: 6 pm at Rapides Deschênes parking (south end of Vanier Road). We’ll stay until around 8:30. We speak English.
For detailed information about our activities (mostly open to everyone), contact the Club at our web site www.coo.qc.ca.
