"The locals were very friendly and extremely helpful and Warbler
migration at Point Pelee was awesome with very close views of many
species of migrant Wood Warblers. I would thoroughly recommend it to
everyone. Also bumped into Alan Gillanders there!!"

Yes the things you see when you don't have a rifle!

The Point was wonderful with almost as many birders as birds. The locals were very helpful (both staff and volunteers), the notice and message boards useful and the weather mostly accommodating. I needed some time to relax so one wet and windy day was acceptable.

Maria and I stayed at Darquin Cottage right on the Lake and close to the National Park at Point Pelee. I would reccommend it to birders. the yard list for our four days would have been over fifty species and included Summer Tanager, Swainson's Thrush, Redheaded Woodpecker, four species of swallow, Kingbird, Catbird, Ruby Kinglet and about four species of warblers. Across the road was the local golf course and it was fun to watch the swallows following the tractors mowing the grass.

Crane numbers are still building here on the Atherton Tablelands.
