A hardy group of 24 participants recently took a 4-day trip to Point Pelee National Park to observe the annual bird migration and other wildlife. It looks like they had a great time judging by these photos taken by Neil Carleton!  All the photos here were taken at Point Pelee National Park, May 4-7, 2015, with the exception of  one taken at Rondeau Provincial Park where the group also explored. Our apologies for the sequence of photos which may not be exactly as they were intended for this post. WordPress software can be a little temperamental and stubborn and has its own plans for the sequence.

Thank you for the pictures Neil!  Enjoy.
