Pelee, northern Michigan and Southern Ontario - Trip Report
Trev Feltham. As this was my first birding trip outside Britain,
naturally I felt like a child let loose in a toyshop on Christmas Eve.
There was so much to see and take in, I didnít know where to start, in
fact it was almost overwhelming, with the emphasis on the word ALMOST.
It was probably the most unforgettable twenty-three days of my life - I
had driven 5,500 miles (on the wrong side of the road), and seen 225 species
of birds. Definitely an experience Iíll never forget for as long as live.

Report - Michigan - March 2001. By Robert Royse. I was looking
some interesting birding where I didn't have to pay for a plane flight
or car rental. Due north was my destination. The Sault Sainte Marie area
is well known for its wintering owls and finches. I was worried that March
would be too late, but it was still very much winter up there. See also
May/June 2001 Report.
