Point Pelee and more

The other day I was working at a site near Point Pelee National Park, so I took a quick trip at dawn right to the southernmost tip of Canada.  At this time of year the park seems virtually deserted particularly when compared with the spring when this place is overrun by eager birders.  On this particular day I arrived in the dark and was greeted by a pair of Great Horned Owls calling.  I walked all the way to the tip and watched the gulls and ducks stream by.  Good numbers of birds but not anything unusual.

Canada's southernmost point of land!

Raptor migration is winding down, but I'm still looking for a Golden Eagle for the year.
