Canadian Raptor Conservancy - Birds in Flight

The Canadian Raptor Conservancy offers bird in flight photo sessions at their facility near Port Dover. Each session runs 3 hours and includes 6 birds in flight and 3 or 4 static birds, and will cost you $50.00 + HST.

This is an excellent opportunity to capture these magnificent birds as they fly between perches roughly 200m apart in an open field. High above, if you look up, you will see wild Bald Eagles flying. At this event, expect to be able to capture great images of Harris Hawk, Red Tailed Hawk, Golden Eagle, Bald Eagle, Peregrine Falcon (very difficult!) and maybe even a Kestrel.

Also available for static, portrait shots would be the Great Horned Owl, Barn Owl, Great Gray Owl or a Long-eared Owl, depending on who's at the "inn" on the given day.

You will need to bring your "A" game technique to this event; it may seem like shooting fish in a barrel - but these birds wait for no one. A good, long, fast lens is a must - preferably zoom f/4 (80-400, 100-400, 200-400) as opposed to fixed. Good panning technique with high powered glass is required. A tripod is recommended also. Timing is everything to get those lift-off and touch-down shots - the most dramatic shots you will get.

The site is open, flat field. Good running/walking shoes are all that you will need for adequate footwear. Dress for the weather - which hopefully is quite fine at this time!

David Barr will accompany us again as our host.

Colin Bantin ( ccbantin@sympatico.ca ) will be leading the group to Rondeau. The plan is for all attending to meet up at Rondeau Joe's - a restaurant just outside the entrance to the park. Please contact Colin for any other details and questions about the meet-up. Because this is a popular site and weekend for birders, it is not likely that there is any "room at the inn" at this point. So unless (like Colin) you can camp out in your van/vehicle at the park overnight, this is likely to be a day trip for you. The drive is approximately 2.5 hours, so you should plan to leave the Oakville area by 8am.

Though a long trip, we guarantee you a great experience, especially under the guidance of Colin and out host David Barr. Hope to see you there.

Please indicate your attendance to this on the Events "Attend" button.

The Grindstone Creek system is a long system.  The part that we will go to runs below the RBG.  The best way to get there is drive to the RBG, turn off Plains road and drive down the road past the RBG building.. It winds down to a dead end.  We would park our cars in the small parking area and walk across the bridge.  At the base of the hill there is a path that follows the creek.  Staying to the right you come to a large open area.  There are two large bridges there.  From where we park our car to the two bridges and beyond there are lots of photo opportunities. Best of all it is free.
We can leave the QEP at 9:00 am and offer car pooling

More details will be released and discussed at the next regular meeting.

Challenge yourself to get outside your comfort zone. Try new things - like fixed focus for quick snaps with no auto focus getting in the way of the decisive moment. Capture some great urban images for diversity. And best of all - have fun!

Meetup at the QEP for 9:30am for car pooling or go directly to the Tim Hortons located at 35 King St E, Hamilton, ON L8N 4A9.

What to bring? I suggest a small and as inconspicuous a camera as possible, with a full frame equivalent lens focal length of about 35 - 50mm - fixed.

Rather than relying on autofocus and metering - try having everything fixed - focus and exposure - so your camera does not have to pause to think about the shot and possibly miss focus or exposure. Also, try to look for situations that may be developing and try to take the shot just at the right moment - the decisive moment. For urban type shots, try to capture something that is telling a story and not just a record of a place.

This magical attraction features over 2,000 colourful tropical butterflies floating freely among lush, exotic blossoms and greenery. Paths wind through the rainforest setting, past a pond and waterfall and the Emergence window, where butterflies leave their pupae and prepare to take their first flight! The self-guided walking tour of the Butterfly Conservatory begins with a short, informative video presentation that is close captioned for the hearing impaired.

The Butterfly Conservatory is located on the grounds of the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens, 10 minutes north of the Falls. Over 2,000 butterflies, made up of 45 different species, call this beautiful space home. Explore 180 metres of pathways winding through a lush, tropical environment.

Devil's Punchbowl is a ribbon waterfall 37 metres (121 feet) in height and a crest width of 3 metres (10 feet). Located at the Devil's Punchbowl Conservation Area in Stoney Creek, the area actually contains two separate falls: the Upper Falls is the classical shape, while the Lower is the ribbon type. Known at one time as Horseshoe Falls, it is the third highest waterfall in Hamilton.

The Devil's Punchbowl does dry up often and has water flowing after rainfalls and during the winter snow melt. Often when water is flowing, it is a trickle- however, this is still an impressive sight, as this thin ribbon waterfall falls 37 metres before making contact with anything.

Above from : http://cityofwaterfalls.ca/devil_punchbowl.html

I have visited the area on Dec 21st and it is accessible with some water flow. I will update as we get closer to the time. There are trails to the bottom which allow you to walk to the base of the falls for some dramtatic views. However, wintery conditions could make this difficult. These trails may require about 45 minutes with some elevation changes.

It is possible to also visit the historical Battlefield House in Hamilton after this venue.

 

How to get there

To reach the Devil's Punchbowl by car, exit from the QEW onto Centennial Parkway South.

This year, the OCC Fall Colours outing will be on Sunday October 5th 2014 at the Terra Cotta Conservation Area.

Entry fee is $5.00 (pay at the entrance booth). This ticket will also get you into Belfountain Conservation Area only 10 minutes away if you would like to venture to that location also. The trip is approximately 45 minutes heading north-east on Winston Churchill.

There is fine landscape photography on offer with bodies of water to enhance the view. There should be some good opportunity for macro photography along the trails also.

Pack you landscape (wide angle, grad filters etc.) and macro gear. Don't forget a tripod.

The Terra Cotta Lane trail is roughly 4km and ranked as beginner - well groomed trail with almost no elevation changes.

Dress for what seems to be a cool Fall season and where comfortable shoes. Hiking boots are  not necessary.

Car-pooling can be arranged via communication through this forum or email - let me know if you are interested and it will be arranged. The usual starting point will be the QEP Parking lot.

Regards,

William Barrow
