The Niagara River, between Lakes Erie and Ontario, hosts thousands of gulls at this time of
year. A wide variety of gull species will be present with good chances for Lesser Black-backed,
Little, Bonaparte's, Iceland, Glaucous and Thayer's. Rarer species such as California, Sabine's,
Mew and Black-legged Kittiwake are possible. Waterfowl diversity should also be good. Friday
we will bird our way west along Lake Ontario.

During the weekend, we will bird mainly from the Canadian side of the river from Ft. Erie to
Niagara-on-the-lake, so proper documentation to cross back and forth between the US and
Canada will be needed. Please confirm documentation requirements when contacting

Email or call the coordinator for reservations or more information.
