A very out of the way location but with some nice walking trails. In the bird migration seasons, there is a banding operation whereby they capture the birds in nets, measure and band them and then release them. The staff are very helpful and informative and will let you take pictures of the captured bird if you wish and even... More

Great Migration in well set out and pleasant surroundings. A must for any birder visiting the area. Ringing demos for those interested and find your own amazingly plumaged American Wood Warblers

there wasn't too much to see the day that we were there, but we didn't hike right into the woods.... so it may in fact have been a different story there

Made a quick stop here because I saw all the birdhouses. The grounds were very tidy and the birds loved it.

It is worth the beautiful drive along the lake out to Long Point during migration season to check in at this bird observatory. You will find yourself close up to the extraordinary migrant warblers and birds of many species. In the hands of the banders. You can discover the amazing feats of endurance and characteristics of these beautiful birds and... More

Birds, birds and more birds. Even a snake, swallowtail butterfly and leopard frog made an appearance. Fantastic spot and worth the drive. This is an excellent resource and important part of tracking bird welfare in Canada. The volunteers of the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory - as well as resident birder, David - enable people to get up close and... More

The PrinceEdwrad Point bird area is a must visit especially during the migration seasons. This banding station is rustic and very well run by volunteers and banding staff. It is a bit remote, but in a beautiful part of Prince Edward County so is worth the drive. Go early in the day. On the route to the banding station you... More

This was a beautiful spot! And the bird observatory was well run and friendly, demonstrating bird banding and providing bird migration education. Want to go back, for sure.

If you are a birder, this is a 'must''! It was great to see the bird-banders at work. The location is quite remote but worth the drive. An added bonus is the hike to the light house through an abandoned fishing village. Great bird watching.
