Hi Everyone
    Birded Presqu'ile Provincial Park on March 25/26, 2006. On March 25th, 
at 4:00pm observed a male Eurasian Wigeon off Bayshore Drive near the north 
end. The wigeon was feeding/swimming with American Wigeon. Today, March 
26th, there were 4 winter plumaged Red-throated Loons that could be seen 
from both Beach # 1 and Owen Point. Other birds of note included 1 
Red-necked Grebe and 1 Tree Swallow off Owen Point, 1 Common Loon off Calf 
Pasture and a Snowy Owl at the west end of High Bluff Island.
                                                            good birding

To reach Presqu'ile Provincial Park, follow the signs from Brighton.
Locations within the Park are shown on a map at the back of a tabloid
that is available at the Park gate.  Access to the offshore islands is
restricted at this time of year to prevent disturbance to the colonial
nesting birds there.
