Shorebirds near Pukaskwa National Park

As one drives south on Hwy 627, just before the bridge over the Pic River, the "s-curve pond" comes into view. Today it held a nice group of southbound shorebirds - Stilt Sandpiper, Lesser Yellowlegs and Short-billed Dowitcher.

  1. I really love these pictures. I’ve just returned from a short vacation at Pukaskwa and I can tell that that it is an amazing place where you can see beautiful nature during a whole year and especially it is right place for birds viewing. Although this is not right season for birds, I was surprised how many possibilities it brings also during summer. This inspiring guide to summer Pukaskwa includes several tips as well. I am sure to come back, and I highly recommend this place to everyone who wants to spend an unforgettable vacation.
