Today there were 5 Snowy Owls in the Owen Point area. Three were along the
beach, one was on the point and one was on Gull Island. There were also 3
male Northern Harriers in the area and a Northern Shrike at the Owen Point
parking lot. No luck with the Barrow's Goldeneye.
Directions courtesy of Fred Helleiner:
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. Visitors to Gull Island not using a boat
should be prepared to wade through knee-deep water in which there is often
a swift current and a substrate that is somewhat uneven and slippery.
Birders are encouraged to record their observations on the bird sightings
board provided near the campground office by The Friends of Presqu'ile Park
and to fill out a rare bird report for species not listed there.
