A Barred Owl visited the feeders at the Visitor Centre in MacGregor point Provincial Park this morning at about 10:30 am. It was seen by two Park empkoyees sitting on the top of one of the feedersfor a couple of minutes. Also this same owl was seen approx. 10-12 days ago by another Park employee in Algonquin Camp ground near campsite #68, aslo at about 10:30 am. At campground #70 there was evidence of a dead rabbit which I assume was a catch for the owl.
MacGregor Point Provincial Park is located south of Port Elgin west of Hwy. #21. Turn west on Saugeen Conc. #4 and travel to the stop sign and turn south on Lake Range Road about 1km to the Park entrance and turn west and go to he Gate House. Follow the signs to Algonquin campground and the Visitor Centre.
