Bald Eagles at "For the Birds" Bird Sanctuary

by Forrest Elmslie
(Colchester, Ontario, Canada)

Forrest Elmslie, the Owner/Operator of "For the Birds" Bird Sanctuary, located off Gore Road, between Colchester and Harrow, sent us this report - On April 23, 2010, we discovered a pair of Bald Eagles nesting in the bird sanctuary.

The nest is huge, and they have obviously been building it for many weeks. Viewing at the Bird Sanctuary has now been roped off, so the nest won't be disturbed. The closest spot to observe the nest is 300 feet away.

The Sanctuary is open to the public and a $5 donation is requested.

Open during the Spring Season
Saturdays & Sundays 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Mondays 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

For more information visit For the Birds website or call 519-735-4997 or 519-984-4997, and for upcoming events at the Bird Sanctuary, check out their Events Calendar.

Just a reminder to our readers that "For the Birds" is a Bird Sanctuary, and is not a public picnic area or playground - the owners want to make your bird watching experience as comfortable as possible, and have installed seating along the over 4 km of trails for your convenience.

Well behaved children are welcome!

We just started camping in Colchester. Trying to find activity to do. This sounds very interesting. Where are you located. I can't find an address.

The Jack Miner Bird Sanctuary is located at 332 Road 3 W, Kingsville, ON N9Y 2E5, which is about a 20 minute drive from Colchester, Ontario. Their website is Jack Miner and here is the address for the "For the Birds Sanctuary" which is 1431 Gore Rd, Harrow, ON N0R 1G0 and is located north of Colchester, on Gore Road.
