Birding

Birdwatching is fun, easy and free! The Great Lakes provide plenty of coastal, wetland, and forested habitats, attracting millions of resident and migratory birds year-round.



Each year, millions of migratory birds pass through the Great Lakes Region


Not only are birds fascinating to observe and photograph, but they are incredibly useful indicators of the health of the region. Visit the “Warbler Capital of Canada,” Point Pelee National Park, for an unforgettable birding experience. As the southernmost location in the Great Lakes region, it is a hotspot for migratory birds in both spring and autumn, but you will find that the entire region boasts phenomenal birding opportunities in all seasons!
