Brought our young teens here and they enjoyed it. It was a nice stop to make while travelling and exploring what Long Point has to offer. Would recommend for kids who like walking in the woods and experiencing birds.

Fortunately, our GPS was able to find the address. No signposts were seen. The place itself is small. However, the volunteers are enthusiastic. The banding process is very interesting. Well worth the stop.

Visited on way through to Long Point camping.
Highly recommend a stop here for kids especially.
We spent about half an hour here but wish we had more time.

Have been here a number of times to see them net birds.. A lot of valuable information over the years about migration has been discovered here. We are lucky to have these people that do this work.

Each visit in the Long Point Bird Observatory Research Station on Old Cut Boulevard is such an enthralling and educational experience! As always, I spent about 30 minutes observing bird banding and chatting with the employees and volunteers. I also visited the Bird Studies Canada Headquarter near Port Rowan and walked on the trail which featured many informative plaques.

Fascinating! For the first time I observed bird banding and was able to see various birds up close. Plenty of informative plaques along the short trails, as well as the staff always willing to answer questions.

Our Red Hat group was there walked along the nets where they catch the birds to tag.
Then we watched the tagging, weighing and releasing of the birds. Great experience.
There were students from 4 or 5 other countries assisting and studying.

This is a wonderful place to see birds in hand. Open till around noon get to see netted species explained to you by knowledgable birders. See how birds are netted. Go on walks around nets to see them captured. Walk through the woods and area and do some birding of your own. You'll meet other birders,discuss sightings in an uncrowded area.

Long Point Bird Observatory or Bird Studies Canada is a great place to start your bird watching adventure in the Long Point area. The head office overlooks a marsh where a number of different birds can be seen each year, as well as the migrants who are passing through in the Spring and Fall. Hiking the well maintained trails takes you through different habitats, including a great view of Long Point Bay where geese, swans and numerous ducks can be seen. From here it's a short drive to Old Cut where you can observe bird banding at the banding lab and get close up photos of migratory song birds. Staff are friendly, well informed and both locations have a chalk board with postings of the regular and rare birds in the area.

Long Point Bird Observatory is not that big, but from the moment I stepped into their "processing" facility and went out to the net area, where they gently catch birds for the purpose of identifying and banding them, I knew I had come to a special place. The first thing we did as a group was to go out to the field to check if birds had been caught in special nets, which don't harm or injure the birds. The volunteers gently pried away the birds from the flimsy netting and bagged them and took them back to the lab where they are identified, measured, weighed and banded. At one point, one volunteer had 6 birds in his bag. The handlers were super gentle with the birds and they did their job as quickly and as efficiently as they could so as not to spook the birds. After being banded, the birds were released through a cubbyhole where they flew back into nature.

What an experience it was for me to be able to observe up front and personal the birds and how they are banded and to see a team of young volunteers, as well as mature and professional ones, all working together to better understand migration patterns and in bird conservation initiatives. What a great way to learn more about birds. Kudos to everyone on this team.
