Fascinating! For the first time I observed bird banding and was able to see various birds up close. Plenty of informative plaques along the short trails, as well as the staff always willing to answer questions.

Our Red Hat group was there walked along the nets where they catch the birds to tag. Then we watched the tagging, weighing and releasing of the birds. Great experience. There were students from 4 or 5 other countries assisting and studying.

This is a stop worth a separate trip to gaze upon some of Lake Erie's largest North Shore wetlands and marshes. Depending on the season, from early March, when thousands of Tundra Swans arrive, until November it is possible to observe large numbers of migratory...More
