There was a winter plumage American Avocet at Presqu'ile Provincial Park
at 9:30am today (Thursday Sept 28).  It was standing on the north shore
of Gull Island about 700 metres out from the Owen Point observation
area.  It would just be visible from this location with a good scope.
Access is allowed beyond Owen Point, out onto Gull Island (which is
currently attached to Owen Pt) on Thursdays, Sundays, and Tuesdays.  The
rest of the week the area beyond Owen Point is closed for a controlled
Waterfowl Hunt.





Exit Hwy 401 at exit # 509 and drive south on County Rd 30 straight
through Brighton going straight down Cedar St. to Harbour St. Turn right
(west) here and follow Harbour St. to Lakeshore Rd and turn left
(south). This road crosses a causeway and turns bends into the park
after 800 metres.
