Bird Watching in Southern Ontario

If you're looking for a mid-week day trip in the Toronto area, consider driving south toward Lake Erie to Big Creek National Wildlife Area in Long Point Ontario. We had a new spotting scope to try out and this was the perfect place.

This park is absolutely beautiful. It was very quiet in terms of people – we only ran into a couple of other wildlife watchers while we were there. There are 2 platforms for viewing far off into the distance, and a path connecting the two. We spent much of the time watching a crane, “up close and personal”.

All the fresh air made us hungry, so we drove down to Long Point Beach for a little picnic lunch. We found a spot on Hastings Drive where we were allowed to park and spent an hour listening to the waves.

I looked around on google maps and saw that Port Rowan Harbour was closeby so off we went to explore it.  It was lovely and reminded me a little bit of our time on the East Coast.
