        Site Description and Birding Information: The view from the north end of Terry-Fox is panoramic and, as such, provides a marvelous vantage for watch migrating raptors, especially in spring. The southern portion descends into a mixed woodland habitat, with a road to the northwest following the shore for cottage access.
         Highway 148 northwest of here as far as Breckenridge often has good panoramic views. Keep your eyes peeled. A Western Kingbird was seen to the river side of the road approaching Breckenridge in 1999.
