Spring Migration in Prince Edward County
May 17-20, 2021
4 days | Canada | Quest Nature Tours
AN ONTARIO GETAWAY
“The County” has become well-known for its wines, but it is perhaps less well-known as a fantastic birding destination. Parts of Prince Edward County are said to be the best locations for migration along the north shore of Lake Ontario! On this getaway, we’ll enjoy getting acquainted with the patchwork of habitats here with an eye out for a variety of bird life. We’ll walk in juniper-studded woodland watching for colourful warblers and tanagers recently returned from the tropics. We’ll scan fenceposts along pastures for grassland birds setting up their breeding territories. We’ll scour limestone shorelines for what lies beyond. Of particular interest will be the lands and waters along the county’s south shores, comprising an internationally significant Important Bird Area, including Prince Edward Point. In the evenings we’ll have re-caps of the day’s events at our charming country inn and also enjoy some of the wines of this terroir. Note:
Participants will travel in their own vehicle to reach the County and will use their own vehicle for local touring. We will travel by convoy to reach sites and be together outdoors while exploring. If necessary, we will be physically distanced at meals, all served at our Inn or in the field.
