Point Pelee and Rondeau Provincial Park, located at the western end of Lake Erie, sits at the confluence of two major bird migration flyways and is ideally situated for receiving many birds in transit during their spring migrations. Of the 501 species known in Ontario, 314 have been recorded in this area during the migration. We have scouted this area for many years and identified the best places to spot and photograph migratory species.
