Birding Saugeen Shores

including MacGregor Point Provincial Park
By Mike Pickup

Birding Saugeen Shores cover

Mike Pickup, author of Birding the Bruce Peninsula, takes readers on seven tours of his home community in Bruce County. With grasslands, forests, and waterfront on both the Lake Huron shoreline and Saugeen River, it's a birding paradise in all seasons.

Discover the spots to find rarely seen birds: Red-Headed Woodpecker, Savannah Sparrow, or Black-Billed Cuckoo. Others pass through on their migrations: Glossy Ibis, Whimbrel, Snowy Egret, Marbled Godwit, and many songbirds. Even in winter, birds add their colour to the landscape.

MacGregor Point Provincial Park hosts the annual Huron Fringe Birding Festival each spring at the height of warbler migration. Mike has been an active volunteer with the Friends of MacGregor since the festival’s early days.

Bring your binoculars, field guide, and curiosity, and go birding with Mike.

62 pages spiral bound to open flat for backpacks, full-colour cover, eight sketch maps.

The Brucedale Family Reader

Edited by Katharine Ferguson

The Brucedale Family Reader cover

The Brucedale Reader is a collection to wrap yourself in on wintry evenings or read aloud under a summer-shady tree. With the heart and eye of a fabric artist, Katharine Ferguson has pieced together familiar materials in different shapes, combining them with new textures and patterns.

Created in the inspiring Queen's Bush area of Ontario, The Brucedale Family Reader reflects the natural Bruce and its people in prose, poetry and art. The sixty-some contributors have produced works totalling roughly double their own number: stories, articles, poetry, drawings from a talented group who know and love the Bruce.
