Sorry for the late posting.

Yesterday at 2:15 p.m., a dark phase Ferruginous Hawk was seen kettling with
approximately 20 Broad-winged Hawks at Beamer.  The bird was seen by Robert
Stamp, John Niewiadomski, Verne Evans, John Olmsted and myself.  People
following the Broad-winged Hawk Migration in Ontario should be on the
lookout for this spectacular bird as it will likely be moving west with the
hawks.

Also of note seen yesterday were 4 Bald Eagles and 1 Golden Eagle.

DIRECTIONS TO BEAMER MEMORIAL CONSERVATION AREA

Please drive carefully - Ridge Road is a narrow, winding two land road with
many intersections.

FROM EAST OR WEST VIA THE QUEEN ELIZABETH WAY (QEW):

Take exit 71 and go south (toward the escarpment) into Grimsby on Christie
Street, which become Mountain Street at the traffic light in the town.
Follow Mountain Street (Regional Road 12) south UP TO THE TOP OF THE
ESCARPMENT. Just at the crest of the escarpment you will see St. Mary's
Ukrainian Church on the left.
At this point, turn RIGHT (west) onto Ridge Road.
Follow Ridge Road for 2.4km to Quarry Road and turn RIGHT (north) onto
Quarry Road and go 100 metres to the entrance to Beamer Memorial CA.
NOTE: Ridge Road also goes east from Mountain Street part way up the hill -
do not take this turn, continue to the top of the hill.


Cheers,
Cheryl Edgecombe
