Parrott’s Bay Conservation Area, located in the Eastern region of Ontario is 117 Hectares (289 acres) in area and is a great location for viewing and photographing a wide variety of Birds, Insects (especially Dragonflies, Damselflies, Jewelwings -"Odonata" family).
We have enjoyed a couple of extended visits at Parrott's Bay in the heat of summer with great success capturing new Bird and Odonata species.
With a mix of wetland, shoreline, marsh areas as well as a mix of Evergreen and Deciduous trees and shrubs in the areas away from the water including open native grass lands - the variety of wildlife including birds, small mammals and insects is quite vast.
As a result of the remoteness, the fauna and flora is pristine, but we do suggest a good pair of binoculars and a long-reach telephoto lens if you wish to see the wildlife up close.
A good plan to visit this area as discovered first hand - is to ensure you are carry plenty of water, food, sunscreen/bug repellent and also be prepared to manage without washroom facilities.
We hope you enjoy our photos - and we are sure to be returning in the new year to further explore this wonderful conservation area...
Thanks for visiting and please share this with others if you like...
