Hotspots in Ontario

Where Should We Go?

Visiting with limited time?

“The best time to arrive would be 7–14 May. Upon arriving in Toronto with half a day head east to the Pickering marshes; with no car, go to Toronto Island. A visitor with 2–7 days should begin at Point Pelee and head east along Lake Erie. Don’t forget Algonquin Park in your week. A late fall visit of 1–2 days should include a drive down to Niagara for water birds.”

From Intro to Ontario by Linda and Chip Weseloh in A Bird–finding Guide to Canada by J. C. Finlay, 1983.
