Lacs Fauvel & Boisé in Blainville

Black-and-white Warbler

It was a sunny and cool morning about 12 degrees Celcius for a walk. BPQ organized an outing to Lacs Fauvel & Boisé in Blainville. These were old quarries which have been turned in to lakes. There were 27 of us walking and looking at the flora and fauna. We saw and or heard 43 species of birds today. I managed to get a few shots. I missed the Red-shouldered Hawk flying (very high) over us.

There were many Mallard ducks on the far shore of the lake. I got some flying by.
