Where beauty and wonder soar.
Thousands of visitors travel to Windsor Essex region annually to see the wide variety of birds that flock to our area. We are one of North America’s premier bird-watching hotspots. Home to Point Pelee National Park, Holiday Beach, Hillman Marsh, Ojibway Park, Rondeau Provincial Park, and Wheatley Provincial Park. Our unique geographical properties act as a funnel for the hundreds of thousands of migratory birds on the move each spring and fall. Our Conservation Areas provide important resting areas as these birds make their long journeys, and also offer year-round habitat for non-migratory birds. Conservation Areas are equipped with convenient parking areas, pleasant trails and good viewing areas, some with viewing towers to experience the pleasure of bird-watching.
