Camp Opemikon Annual Work Weekend

Saturday April 25.

This is a great opportunity for area Venturers to get the scout camp spruced up for the summer season.
It’s also a great chance to do so opportunistic birding.

Barbara had a beautiful male Yellow-bellied Sapsucker land on the roof of the boat shed, where she and some Venturers were taking inventory.
She also noted several Eastern Phoebes around, including some making a nest on top of a light at the health centre. A Common Loon was calling for a mate, and swung in close to shore.
Finally one of the lake’s Ospreys flew past, hunting, several times. It was a hard day’s work!
