|Birding around Port Rowan.|
The cottage we rented was at Bayside Vacation Resort, recommended from a friend who works at Bird Studies Canada. It was the perfect location, just a few minutes from the Long Point Bird Observatory, Bird Studies Canada, Backus Woods, and many other great birding locations in the area.
I was kind of surprised at how few people we ran into during our 3 night, 4 day stay. I know Point Pelee and Rondeau are more popular birding spots during Spring migration, but honestly, the Port Rowan/Long Point area is great too, and without the crowds. We've already booked for next year!
We had just under 90 species during our trip. I noticed this trip that Rob spent more time looking through his binoculars than his camera lens. A testament to how relaxed he was? He did manage a few photos though.
Please enjoy a few photos from out trip.

The trip was the perfect mix of relaxation and birding.
