GTA and Amherst Island: Owl Tour
February 3-5, 2017
While owls can be observed in Ontario year round, perhaps one of the best times for owl viewing in Ontario occurs between January and February. This is due to the combination of our regular wintering owls and the addition of species such as Snowy Owls that spend the winter in Southern Ontario. During this tour we will visit local hotspots in the Greater Toronto Area as well as Amherst and Wolfe Island (Kingston area) for Snowy Owls as well as a variety of owl species including Great Horned Owls, Long-eared Owls, Short-eared Owls and Northern Saw-whet Owls. Even for frequent birders, the opportunity to see an owl in the wild is a rare treat!
