Q: In one of your earlier columns, you listed some great places for bird watching. I've since lost the paper but was hoping you could let me know of any upcoming events for bird watchers.

A: From May 28 until June 6, hundreds of bird enthusiasts and outdoor buffs will be celebrating spring at the Huron Fringe Birding Festival located at the MacGregor Point Provincial Park. This year-round park situated in Bruce County boasts a complex eco-system along this side of Lake Huron.

During the festival, participants can bird watch, view presentations, hike and participate in workshops. During past festivals, bird watchers identified over 150 species including mighty red tailed hawks, playful wild turkeys, and majestic cliff, barn and bank swallows.

For registration information and more details on the Huron Fringe Birding Festival, contact the Friends of MacGregor Point Park.

Schedules and festival information are available at their web site, or call (519) 389-6231 or (519) 389-6232 or (519) 389-2444.

If you are interested in attending one of the events, make sure you pre-register. The activities are very popular and are quickly filling up.
