Closed on Sunday so we just wandered.

Reliving a time from my childhood when we used to visit. Nice just to walk around. Closed on Sunday, the birds are there but not much else going on.

We visited the sanctuary in the 'off season' (not during the spring or fall migrations), so things were quiet. The museum was interesting and gave you an overview of Jack Miner and his contemporaries. The staff person in the house filled in the rest of the blanks, and made some interesting additions. Miner was a friend of Thomas Edison and... More

My husband Brian enjoys nature photography and wanted to check out Jack Miner Bird Sanctuary while we were visiting the Kingsville area. Our tour guide was a lovely young woman who knew everything about Jack Miner and the history of the sanctuary along with his family. We enjoyed our tour of the grounds, hoping for the peacocks to put on... More

Jack Minor is a free sanctuary where geese and ducks, along with other birds make their home along. There are a few caged fowl who are contained in large pen type cages for their own protection. Feed is free for children and even adults like me, to feed the geese and ducks. Twice a year there are presentations. The fall... More

Wonderful background on Jack Miner - his bird banding process and his dedication to wildlife. They were preparing for a 150th anniversary celebration. Not migration season so just the birds that stay there all year.

Somehow the often stodgy old Jack Miner (Wild Goose Jack) museum had lost its appeal. Then, a new and creative curator was given responsibility for the museum and the former Miner home and an entirely new and more delightful educational experience has come into fruition. They even hosted a Windsor-Essex ElderCollege course here a year ago. This is now a... More

I am not sure what I missed here. A gaggle of geese in a corn field and some birds in cages. I was here 20 years ago, took the tour. I was left completely underwhelmed.

I wouldn't say Jack Miner's was poor but the bird watching certainly was. We visited on October October 24, 2014 at around noon. The only birds were some peacocks in cages and a few geese floating on a tiny enclosed pond. We spent about ten minutes and saw everything. Very possibly this was the wrong time of day and if...
