Thousands of these magnificent birds use the Aylmer Wildlife Management Area to refuel on their migration to the high Arctic Region between Alaska and Baffin Island.
Each year it’s expected that 10-60 thousand birds will stopover here. Birdwatchers from all over the province come to Aylmer to see this beautiful bird, and wonder of nature that is right here in our backyard!
Make sure you grab some family and friends, and make a trip to the Aylmer Wildlife Management Area. There are trails, wildlife viewing stands, interpretative signs, brochures, and plenty of parking.
