Through outstanding bird photography, explore the many facets involved in birding during the spring migration by spending a fascinating week at Point Pelee, Ontario, a world-famous birding hotspot with birders of all ages from all over the world. (DVD Cover, left.)
Birders from all over North America come to the southernmost point in Canada, Point Pelee, which juts out into Lake Erie. It is the place where the birds land and congregate after crossing the open waters of the lake and rest up before moving on.
Birders might see a passing Tundra Swan (left) or a Scarlet Tanager (below). But the warblers, tiny birds flitting around the branches, are a special treat: (clockwise) the Blackburnian, the Black-throated Blue, or a rare sighting of a Blue-winged.
The boardwalk below offers an intimate look at marsh birds like the Black-crowned Night Heron eating a tasty morcel.
Birding appeals to people of all ages. (Above) A young birder is up at 6 a:m to see the first exhausted birds on the beach after flying during the night. A Yellow-breasted Chat rests on beach debris.
