Walks and field trips are held throughout the year. Local activities are a good way for members to enjoy our area’s natural heritage, share their experience and learn through observation.

On an overcast but not rainy Saturday, January 19, 10 intrepid Willow Beachers plus 3 TOC members from Toronto spent a rather productive day on Amherst Island which ended up with a tally of 40 species. The highlight was 6 Snowy Owls and a cooperative Barred Owl. 1 Short-eared Owl was seen but only by one person. The Owl Woods were quiet. The Rough-legged Hawks, both colour morphs, were also special, the more so since there are relatively few around in general this winter. Much of what we saw was seen well by all.
