8:00 a.m. From Montreal, take highway 15 north, and then exit 31. We will meet at the Petro-Canada station, just east of highway 15, at exit 31. Count 25 minutes from crossroads between highways 15 and 40 in Montreal.
We will explore a diversity of habitats in the area between Mirabel and Lachute. We will start with the fields near Mirabel which are known for snowy owls, gray partridges and snow buntings among others. We will then visit more wooded areas as well as a landfill where gulls, including Glaucous and Iceland Gulls concentrate. It will be a driving trip, with several short walks. Half day.
