Bird-life is especially keen at this time of year in Niagara Falls.

Birders tell me the Niagara River and the falls is a mecca for at least eighty-five different varieties of birds. There have been twenty different kinds of gulls spotted along the Niagara River and the falls at Table Rock, along with Jaegers and terns. The river is also a place where you will find geese, surface feeding ducks, diving ducks and Mergancers.

I personally have spotted down river from the falls at Locust Point (near the entrance to Queenston Heights Park off the Niagara Parkway) Turkey Vultures, Hawks, Chickadees, Osprey and a few years ago a Bald Eagle.

If you’re looking for something new to do, grab a pairs of binoculars’ and a bird book and make your way to Niagara Falls.
