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 on the Carden Plain which supports Upland Sandpiper, Bobolink, Golden-winged Warbler and Loggerhead Shrike. Then it is on to 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! At the “Big 3” migration hotspots on Lake Erie, Point Pelee, Rondeau and Long Point, we search for species such as Red-bellied Woodpecker, White-eyed Vireo, and Kentucky, Cerulean, Hooded and Prothonotary Warblers; during some spring migrations, up to 35 species of warblers may be observed at Point Pelee alone!
