New Shorebird Identification Sign at Hillman Marsh

Mounted in the viewing shelter at Hillman Marsh Shorebird Cell is this beautiful new shorebird identification sign. Each species recorded at Hillman Marsh is shown with a photo in breeding plumage together with key identification points. The Ontario Field Ornithologists contributed to the sign financially and with shorebird identification expertise. Photos by Jean Iron, Jeremy Bensette, Cherise Charron, Barry Cherriere, Frank and Sandra Horvath, Dave Milsom, and Mark Peck. Many of the photos were taken at Hillman Marsh and Point Pelee.
