Most of them are gone now. Migrated to warmer climes. Only the hardy ones stay back to brave the winter. (Should there be any confusion we’re talking about birds, not the go-south-snowbirds who usually migrate via ships, planes and cars.)

They’ll be back though. And if you’re a Birder of any sort, you’ll want to be around to witness and watch.

Well, there’s no better venue than the Bruce Peninsula and environs…especially MacGregor Point Provincial Park. Being on a natural migration corridor it’s the ideal backdrop to catch their coming back. Which is why the eight day Huron Fringe Birding Festival (HFBF) operating out of the park and, one of Canada’s premier birding and nature festivals, gives you the best chance for the kind of “looks” you’re looking for, be you a casual or experienced birder.

HFBF features 58 birding events – nine botany events – two banquets – 12 evening lectures – boat trips to Chantry Island and Flowerpot Island – five photography hikes – field sketching and journaling events – butterfly and insect hikes – geology exploration – reptiles – raptors – amphibians – wildflowers and orchids – astronomy – a fun-filled family weekend and (of course) lots more.

ON JANUARY 15 we’ll be posting the full schedule on this blog.

Or you can log on to and check out all the events as well.

This gives you time to make your selections and get ready for on-line registration beginning February 1. It’s wise to pre-plan your choices because a good number of events fill up fast. Some even sell out within the first week of registration.
