Overview

Join us for an exciting birding tour of Point Pelee and other spring migration hot spots of southern Ontario!

On this incredible tour of Ontario, we start off at the “Big 3” migration hotspots on Lake Erie: Long Point, Rondeau, and Pelee. We will search for species uncommon or absent elsewhere in Canada such as Red-bellied Woodpecker, White-eyed Vireo, and Kentucky, Cerulean, Hooded and Prothonotary warblers. During some spring migrations with favorable weather, up to 35 species of warblers may be observed at Point Pelee alone! We move on to the Carden Plain which supports Upland Sandpiper, Bobolink, Golden-winged Warbler and Loggerhead Shrike. Our final destination is the marvelous Algonquin Park, where we look for Boreal Chickadee, Spruce Grouse, Black-backed Woodpecker and other northern specialties while keeping an eye out for moose, otter, maybe even wolf!

"Thoroughly enjoyed my first exposure to a birding vacation.  The guides were very knowledgeable and did their best to make sure we all saw as many birds as possible." 4/5 stars - Point Pelee 2015

“A wonderful trip, with great guides & friendly participants.  Weather meant that the birds at Pt. Pelee were less than terrific, but overall the birding was splendid.  Great to see so many parts of Ontario” 4.5/5 stars - Point Pelee 2015
