Our sprawling Lake Huron coastline gives birders and photographers unique opportunities to discover nature.

At the end of their seasonal winter journey, spring welcomes our colourful and serenading birds home to nest, with plenty of food in sight and wildflowers in bloom. Scout land, forest woodlands and sky to catch a glimpse of our feathered friends!
