wye Marsh or Point Pele in mid October?

looking for a nature weekend/day after thanksgiving but I have never been to either of these places. Looks like Pelee might be better next spring?? Is the Marsh still worth a trip in the later fall? Any trumpeters or other wildlife present? all help appreciated.

Pelee, of course, is lengendary in springtime [and also very crowded...] but it can be excellent for birds in autumn- and very quiet. Also, the Holiday Beach hawk count is carried on at Holiday Beach Conservation Area which is located between Pelee and Windsor. Expert hawk watchers count all of the raptors coming through, and on a good day [ usually with winds from the north is best]. Mid -October is a good time for a nice mix of migrant species and daily counts in the high hundreds or into the thousands are not uncommon. The count is from a tower overlooking a marsh, so there are usually lots of waterbirds around plus various songbird migrants. I definitely would recommend Pelee and area.
