During the Spring of 2018, Mr. Martin Picard from Développement ornithologique Argenteuil proceded to the inventory of birds travelling in the Sentiers des Pionniers and in the Denommé Park.

Here is the report from his work

June 16 2018

It is very early the morning when amateurs went to the Park Denommé for the observation of diurnal birds. Once again, accompanied by Mr Picard of DOA, they were able to take advantage of his knowledge on the subject and to share his love of birds.

They were to notice that breeding grounds installed earlier in the spring are occupied well.

Here is the list of birds seen or heard during this activity.

May 26 2018

On a very beautiful evening of May, a dozen people gathered in the Pioneers trails for the observation of night birds.

They were accompanied by Martin Picard of Développement ornithologique d'Argenteuil (DOA).

Here is the list of birds seen or heard during this activity.

 


Birdhouses installation

For the professional ornithologists or amateurs, we are pleased to inform you that in association with Ornithological Development Argenteuil, around thirty birdhouses were installed in our paths of the Sentiers des Pioneers and the Sentier Denommé.

The preparation for the inventories of the spring will be made towards in the middle of April 2018 and the beginning the inventories would take place from the end of April, 2018. If inventories of winter or night birds are wished, the preparation would be made then ideally in December, 2017 before the snowfall to be able to make the inventories from January 2018 (winter inventories) or in the end of February, 2018 (inventories of night birds).


We must add that night birds have a detectability very different from other birds due to their behavior and their rhythm of life. It is very difficult and rare to count them during the inventories of standard birds and thus are very often absent or under represented there. Consequently, the inventories for these species must be adapted to reflect this reality.

The detection is mainly made in the listening and by detecting the answers obtained during sound transmissions of shouts at any end of the afternoon and at the beginning of the evening. The main species which can be detected in this way are for your sector owls and owls, nightjars (of America and rotten wood) and the Woodcock of America. It should be noted that all these species are or very sensitive to the human presence OR decreasing number marked for several years in Quebec.

We shall proceed during spring to develop areas to facilitate you the observation.

In the meantime, here are coordinates UTM to allow you to find breeding grounds with your GPS:
