Birding at Rondeau Provincial Park

Tuesday, May 14 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join Stewart MacDonald on this journey to one of the most renowned Birding Hotspots in Ontario! Rondeau Provincial Park, located on the north shore of Lake Erie, is known for it’s old growth Carolinian Forest and it’s proximity to Lake Erie. Migrant Songbirds are the Park’s main attraction in the Spring.

Our target species are Warblers in their Spring Plumage as they pass through the Park on the way to their breeding grounds. In addition, Flycatchers, Thrushes, Vireos, Orioles, Indigo Buntings and Scarlet Tanagers are sought after species at this time of year.

The “Star of the Show” is often the Prothonotary Warbler which is an Endangered Species in Ontario. Rondeau is usually one of the most reliable places in the Province to see this brilliant Songbird.

The group will convene at 8:00 AM at the parking lot inside the Park Gate. There is a fee to enter the Park. Please dress according to the weather conditions and wear comfortable walking shoes. The terrain is generally flat and dry. The outing will proceed RAIN OR SHINE and will commence at “Warbler Way”. Clean bathrooms are located there, as well as throughout the Park.

Please bring your binoculars, snacks and water for this excursion. Stewart will send participants an email a few days before the outing and will answer any questions you may have.

Looking forward to seeing you at Rondeau for a Fun and Exciting day of birding!
