Birding By Boat
The Bruce Peninsula is on a major North American bird migration corridor, known as the ‘Huron Fringe’.
The Fishing Islands where we tour include the islands, coastal wetlands and the reefs and shoals that are the location of nesting sites for a number of species, particularly in May and June.
Great blue herons, white egrets and gulls nest in rookeries off-shore. Bald-eagles spend time here as do a number of waterfowl and other species.
The endangered piping plover nested on these shores in 2008 when water was low and there was suitable nesting habitat.
The Huron Fringe Birding Festival which takes place at McGregor Point, just 45 km south of our departure location takes place in our region every May/June, is enjoyed by many. The 2017 festival bird count tallied 181 species. The Bruce Peninsula Bird Observatory is located at Cabot Head on the Bruce Peninsula, just 60 km north. This station in North Bruce has a significant fall migration monitoring program. A total of 133 species of birds were detected in standard count area over the monitoring season.
Please call and we will arrange a tour to suit your birding or photography needs.
