Point Pelee National Park of Canada
Each spring, thousands of colourful songbirds stop to rest in the forests of Point Pelee National Park during their northbound migration. During Point Pelee's Festival of Birds in May, birdwatchers from all over the world gather in the park to witness this grand phenomenon. In autumn, thousands of migrating butterflies stop at Point Pelee. As soon as favourable conditions occur, they cross Lake Erie en route to the mountains of Central Mexico. Canoes can be used to explore the marsh or walk along one of the many trails. Approximately 12 miles of sandy beaches are located in the park for swimming. From the Visitor Centre, visitors can ride a shuttle to the most southern tip of mainland Canada.
