Point Pelee

Sunday November 3rd was a brisk but sunny day. Because we wanted to get an early start we decided to spend the night at Leamington. And it was well worth being at Point Pelee early to witness thousands of birds taking part in the fall migration.

By noon the parade of birds overhead had pretty much petered out so we decided to take a walk on the boardwalk through the wetlands. There were a number of mallards, Canada geese and coots. And we also spotted a couple of Kildeer.
