Nottawasaga Island - Collingwood, Ontario

Nottawasaga Island is a small treed island located at the southern end of Georgian Bay near Collingwood, Ontario. According to IBA Canada, this is one of only four large Great Egret colonies in Canada. Recently I made a trip to the island during breeding season.

For those interested in learning more about Great Egrets, Chip Weseloh, together with Dave Moore and Tina Knezevic, wrote an informative article that appeared in Ontario Birds (April 2014) on the wintering locations of Ontario-banded Great Egrets.
