Birding the Islands by Boat with Doug Pedwell

Join group leader Doug Pedwell to discover the birds of the Fishing Islands off the west coast of the Bruce Peninsula.

Since retiring from teaching, Doug has been able to indulge his lifelong passions of of birding and photography. He can often be found scanning the shoreline of Lake Huron and the Fishing Islands in search of the birds that pass through this beautiful part of the Bruce Peninsula and nest here in the spring.  A member of the Bruce Birding Club, the Saugeen Shores Camera Club, past-president of the Friends of MacGregor Point Park and past Co-Chair of the Huron Fringe Birding Festival, you will enjoy having Doug share his skill and local knowledge aboard our vessel.

During this 2.0 hour tour we will visit a heron rookery while navigating through the islands. Passengers will remain onboard, and the entire tour is conducted from the boat.
