Every spring, billions of gem-like songbirds and waterfowl migrate to Canada’s boreal forest. The dawn chorus of singing birds in the spring is a symphony of melodies and a feast to the ears. Birders will not want to miss the annual Songbird Festival, held the first weekend in June, to hear and see up to 23 of Canada’s 28 warbler species. The park protects diverse bird habitats including lakeshore, old growth forest, wetlands and mixed wood forest. There are a number of owl species to be found including the great grey owl, the northern hawk owl, the barred owl and a fall migration of northern saw-whet owl. As well, there have been rare sightings of the pygmy owl, the black guillemot and lazuli bunting.
