The incredible migratory bird season is on !!! If you love nature, Long Point, Ontario is a sand spit jutting into Lake Erie nearly 40 kilometres and it's a major stopover point for migratory birds. Much of the peninsula is covered with sedge and grass and is peppered with stunted trees. Warm Lake Erie waters and a plentiful food supply around the point provide the perfect mix for thousands of migrant and mating waterfowl, waders, and shorebirds. One of the best places to observe these birds, or other wildlife, is about halfway down the causeway on the southwest side. "Big Creek National Wildlife Area". There’s even a two level structure built to overlook the whole marsh. Highly recommended !!! Take your camera and binoculars.
