The fields and pastures of Haldimand attract many wintering raptors, including Short-Eared Owls. The open water along the Lake Erie shoreline can be a good spot for spotting waterfowl and the occasional Bald Eagle. Bring binoculars and wear warm clothing. Meet in Port Dover at the base of the dock on the west side of the harbour. This event is weather permitting.
