As many of you know, we specialize in backyard birding and the entire experience through wellness it can provide each and every one of us. While we certainly love sitting around our yard and taking in all of the birds we have the pleasure of viewing, we also enjoy venturing out into the field for additional opportunities.
In addition to a change of scenery, heading out either locally or abroad offers us yet another chance to reconnect with nature. Fortunate for us here in the Ottawa area, there is no shortage of wonderful parks, conservation areas and green space for all of us to enjoy.
Last week, we decided to take a trip to the nearby Morris Island Conservation Area just outside of Fitzroy Harbour. This 47-hectare property is managed by our friends at the Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority and offers birders a wonderful opportunity to spot a number of different bird species.
