Wildlife on the Grand River Southern Ontario

 "We have had trips where wildlife seems to be everywhere... wild turkeys fly in front of us... deer splash across... foxes run the shoreline... hawks dive-bomb eagles... beaver swim beside us... things that people only expect when journeying north to Algonquin.
