Description:
Rondeau Provincial Park is located on the North Shore of Lake Erie and is a World Renowned Birding Destination. It is known for it’ s Old Growth Carolinian Forest and extensive coastal wetlands. It is also one of the most Exciting Birding Destinations during Spring Migration in Ontario!

Please join Stewart, who has birded Rondeau for over 30 Years, in searching for Warblers and Other Notable Spring Migrants during this outing! It is not impossible to see over 20 Species of Warblers plus Vireos, Thrushes and the more Familiar migrants such as Baltimore Oriole, Scarlet Tanager and Rose Breasted Grosbeak. The Star of The Show is often the Prothonotary Warbler, which is an Endangered Species in Ontario, but is a regular visitor to the Park and one of the only places in Ontario where there is a high probability of seeing one!

The outing will last for 4 hours and then we will take a lunch break in the picnic area, to dine and watch for sparrows. There is a fee to enter the Park and there are good washroom facilities where we will be. Car Pooling is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED as parking in Rondeau is Very Limited. The drive to Rondeau is approximately 2 to 2 1/2 hours from KW so plan accordingly. Bring your binoculars, good walking shoes and dress for the weather, as the outing will proceed rain or shine.

Registration: The outing is limited to 15 people, and registration is required by contacting Stewart directly.
