Véloroute des Draveurs North from Low

June 30, 2013

Today we met the Chelsea Bowmans and went for a bike ride and picnic on the Véloroute des Draveurs.  Sam alternated between riding his bike and getting pulled in the Charriot with David.  We only went 6.5 km and return, stopping at the picnic site at Highway 105.  We heard many Common Yellowthroats and Sam was the first to find one under a spruce tree.  Other good finds were several Brown Thrashers, a Ruby-throated Hummingbird, a Northern Flicker and a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker.  We could not find the Alpaca farm while biking, since the trail map was full of errors.  Later we drove to it and had a good tour from the owners.
