Wings of Spring: This annual birdwatching festival at Rondeau Provincial Park, southeast of Chatham, takes place March 19 and 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Rondeau is an annual rest stop for thousands of Tundra swans and ducks making their way north to traditional breeding grounds. Wings of Spring activities suit all ages and include birdhouse building, crafts, waterfowl viewing stations along the bay, a bird-of-prey show, artisans and a barbecue lunch.
Waterfowl Weekends: Presqu'ile Provincial Park, south of Brighton, is also on a major migratory route. As many as 10,000 birds representing 25 different species of ducks, geese and swans are expected to make a rest stop in Presqu'ile Bay. Volunteer naturalists and telescopes will be positioned at various viewing hides around the park on Waterfowl Weekend, March 19 to 20. The Lighthouse Interpretive Centre will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will be the focus of the indoor activities with duck displays and children's activities.
