The end of May in Gatineau Park is in full bloom with many trees, shrubs and smaller plants producing beautiful flowers as spring advances towards summer. The famous White and Red Trilliums may be observed this time, as well as many other spring ephemerals such as Wild Ginger, Bloodroot, Squirrel Corn, and many, many more. Birds at this time are already well hidden in the shadows of tree-crowns, but their songs are distinctive and recognizable. So, we’ll have opportunity to practice the identification of bird songs on mnemonics and other typical signals.
