PP&J Biking

July 14, 2014

We finally finished our last section of the Pontiac & Pacific Junction bike trail.  We went from Wyman to Shawville and return, having finished the farther away sections in previous years.  We managed to cover the 37 km distance, which is quite a feat considering all the stops we do for birding.  The birds along the remote trail have never seen a birder, let alone heard a taped call.  The Magnolia Warbler was a highlight.

When we finished we decided to take the Quyon Ferry to Ontario and come home through Dunrobin.  This yielded the last 8 species on our list.
