May is Here and the Birds are Arriving!!

leave a comment »

May has arrived and more migrating birds are appearing every day in Bruce and Grey Counties. There are still opportunities to register for both all day and half day hikes during the Huron Fringe Birding Festival. Some of our excellent leaders have room on some of their hikes for nature lovers that want to learn more about Bruce and Grey Counties in general or more about the birds and botany of the area specifically. I’ve lived here most of my life and I’m still finding new locations that offer many interesting birds, plants and scenery. Let one of our knowledgeable leaders introduce you to our area and the sights and sounds that spring migrations and a walk closer to nature can provide.
Here’s a link to the Festival web pages where you can check out the schedule of events, read over the leaders’ biographies, see what birds we have seen during past festival and most importantly register for one event or more to join in the fun.

Any photos in these blogs are birds that have been seen or events that have been run at previous festivals.

This is one of Ontario’s top 100 festivals and if you sign up for an event or two, I’m sure you’ll see why. MacGregor Provincial Park is itself a beautiful place to visit and events that take you out to various habitats show the diversity of birds, plants and other wildlife in the area around the park.

Take a few minutes to check us out or tell a friend about the festival if you’ve been here in previous years. It’s a great place to meet new people, see new birds, get some fresh air on some interesting hikes and thoroughly enjoy what nature provided us in this part of Ontario.

We have diverse habitats, many migrants as well as nesting birds and would love to share our area with you the last weekend in May and the first weekend in June. Join in the fun and pick one or two events that seem to interest you the most. Hope to see you out on the trail or sitting with your binoculars waiting for the birds to come to you.
