Patterson Island Slate Islands
I was certain that there was a waterbird flight path that connected Nipigon Bay, the Slate Islands, Michipicoten and Caribou Islands in the eastern part of Lake Superior. In May of 2015, Greg Cleary and Joseph Youngman were dropped off on Patterson Island to see if waterbirds were skimming along the west edge of the Slates. We saw a pretty good migration there.
The scenery was fabulous, the vegetation was amazingly thick in most areas. Our hiking was rather limited. We saw Woodland Caribou scat but not the critters themselves. Our report is here -----
