PGNS – Warblers and other Songbirds Field Trip
Leader: Terry Boswell
Location: Meet at the front gate at 8am
Jerry Lawrence Provincial Park
4775 St. Margaret’s Bay Road
Upper Tantallon
Jerry Lawrence Provincial Park

The park does not open until May 17th so we will meet at the gate. If, by chance, the park opens earlier, follow the road to a parking lot on the left next to a grassy area with picnic tables. It is a 1km walk from the gate to the park and approximately 1.5km loop around the park. The total distance, with a few side trails, will be about 5km. The main trails are easy but some may be muddy.


  • appropriate footwear for wet trails
  • rain gear unless of course, there is 0% chance of rainwater
  • snacks/lunch
  • insect repellent
  • rain protection for your equipment
  • longest lens you can carry – at least 200mm but more is better
  • binoculars, if you have them

Warblers and other songbirds are difficult to photograph as they rarely sit still. Hopefully, the leaves will not be fully out, allowing us better views of the birds.

Weather: As of May 10th, the forecast is for showers on May 15th. An email will be sent by about 7pm on Saturday evening if the trip is cancelled due to weather.

Health Etiquette: If you do not feel well for any reason, please stay home. Although the field trip is outside, please be respectful and give people enough physical space regardless of whether or not they are wearing a mask. Those who are disrespectful will be eaten by mosquitoes.
