Point Pelee National Park of Canada

Birds of Point Pelee National Park

More than 370 species of birds have been recorded in Point Pelee and the surrounding area, making this one of the premiere birdwatching locations in North America. Point Pelee is an important migratory stop-over for neo-tropical migrants, both in the autumn and fall. As well, its Carolinian Forest provides breeding habitat for species that are rarely found elsewhere in Canada.
