North American Long-distance & Irruptive Migrants

The Hilliardton Marsh Provincial Wildlife Area, located in Northeastern Ontario, 180 kms north of North Bay, 15 kms southeast of Englehart is a provincially significant wetland. Home to over 600 species of waterfowl, songbirds, mammals, fish and plant life, Hilliardton Marsh is continentally significant for waterfowl migrating to and from the James Bay and Hudson Bay lowlands. It is also a significant location in North America for studying owls.
