Tour Description

This hike will begin at 8:00am at the Port Rowan Restored Wetland. After searching for birds there, we will spend our morning checking a number of hotspots around Port Rowan, in search of large concentrations of waterfowl and Sandhill Cranes. Early spring birding in the Long Point area can truly be a spectacle, with thousands of Sandhill Cranes, Tundra Swans and other waterfowl staging here on their migration north. If a warm front passes before our trip, we may encounter other early spring migrants such as Killdeer, Eastern Meadowlark Eastern Bluebird. We will break for lunch in Port Rowan, then in the afternoon we will work our way down the Causeway to Long Point Provincial Park. During the day we will be offering identification pointers and trying to ensure everyone gets good views and photos of the species we encounter. This hike is accessible for those with physical challenges; the trails are well maintained and flat. We will be walking and driving on gravel roads at some points, which means that potholes are always a possibility (so drive accordingly!). We will spend the day birding at a slow and relaxed pace, taking frequent stops along the way. Bathroom breaks are spaced throughout the day, with a planned stop every 1.5-2 hours. *Notes* -Port Rowan no longer has a gas station, so make sure to fill up prior to arriving. -bring your own lunch, snacks, and water (stay hydrated!) -bring sunscreen, a hat, and warm enough clothes to be comfortable in rainy or low temperature conditions... March is quite a variable month in Southern Ontario in terms of weather! -a scope will be provided but feel free to bring your own. -Advice on accommodations and places to eat will be provided after registering.
