Wednesdays of the Great Egret at Deschênes Rapids.
August 11: An invitation of the Club des ornithologues de l’Outaouais (COO). For a tenth consecutive summer, this weekly outing has for purpose to observe and count 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 bike path. Your expert Rodolphe, with your help, will ensure to miss nothing about what’s going on. The rapids at the sunset, these elegant white wading birds and the other birds on the move will give an impressive show. An activity for all.
Rendez-vous : 18h00 at Rapides Deschênes parking (south end of Vanier road in Aylmer sector). We’ll stay until around 20h30. Your guide: Rodolphe Dubois (819-685-9159). For detailed information about our activities (mostly open to everyone), visit our web site www.coo.qc.ca
