My first visit to the Jack Miner Bird Sanctuary, that I remember, was in the early 1940's when, as a young man of age 8 or 9-years, my parents took me here when we were en route to visit my mother's birthplace, London, Ontario. Ty...More

Very disappointed to find the sanctuary closed. Poor signs, no indication of hours were posted. There were some interesting facts about Jack Minor posted on a fence. We felt like intruders. A disappointment, as we had fond memories from our childhood.

Birds are there all year but the Canadian geese organize to head south in the fall. Fenced area has various unique birds. A lot of free parking available. Donation is optional. Short visit.

I assume you mean "banded" As far as I know 1944 showed 50,000 had bands put on their leg. I do not know a more recent figure. We are in that area regularly so I will stop in and ask for update if they have one.
