        Site Description and Birding Information: Rue Beaulac quickly becomes Chemin Queen's Park where a creek flows into Alexandria Bay. Queen's Park is a lovely road along the river, then through beautiful deciduous woodland. Unfortunately, it is under development and may be much less interesting in a few years, though some of the forest is slated to be preserved as parkland.
