Pete Thayer's Favorite Hot Spots:


58.48 N   94.12 W
Go in mid to late June to see Ross's Gull, Hudsonian Godwit, Arctic Tern, Smith's Longspur and lots of other sought-after birds. Take the train up and fly back.

Riding Mountain National Park
50.54 N   100.06 W
In southwest Manitoba, this park has many excellent, easy to reach birding sites. Watch for Northern Hawk-Owl. At dusk, watch beavers as they build yet another dam.
