Great Bird Watching
in the Boreal Forests
of Northern Ontario Canada
When people think of birding, or bird watching,
in Canada's Northern Ontario boreal wilderness, the Loon usually
comes to mind first. And we do have lots of loons and they are
one of our more fascinating neighbours. Our boreal forests are
also home to numerous warblers, sparrows, waterfowl and birds
secluded resort is in the Chapleau Wildlife Preserve, in the heart
of Ontario Boreal Forest region straddling the height of land
between Hudson's Bay and Lake Superior. We have over 120
bird species, many of which are particular to our region,
or are only found in Ontario Boreal forests.
We have trails which go through different
habitats in our area and we also provide boats, kayaks and canoes
for exploring the many wetland areas.
Other wildlife viewing, like moose and black
bear watching, is excellent also. We are completely inside a 3,000
square mile (7,000 square km) wildlife sanctuary, the Chapleau
Game Preserve. The Chapleau Game Preserve is considered to be
the largest wildlife sanctuary in the world. Since 1925 the only
hunting allowed in the wildlife sanctuary, is with a camera. Sightings
of Moose and Black Bears are very common.
Our web site contains further information on our resort and area.

Birding or Bird Watching Books
|The Sibley Guide to Birds
(Audubon Society Nature Guide Series)
From Scientific American
"For birders who cut their teeth on Roger Tory Peterson's
Field Guide to the Birds, that book seemed definitive, like the
King James Bible or Bogart and Bergman in Casablanca. But it's
a new millennium, and David Allen Sibley and the National Audubon
Society have produced an impressive new Guide to Birds.
From Popular Science
"Sibleys book contains full descriptions of all 816 North
American Species...paintings show plumage in every stage of development,
for both sexes..."
