Formed at the end of the Ice Age, the Niagara Falls have become one of Canada’s top tourist attracktions.
In December 1678, French preist and explorer Louis Hennepin was the first Europeen visitor to the area and it soon became a French settlement.
The Niagara Falls is a combonation of tree waterfalls – the American Falls, the Bridal Veil Falls and the Horseshoe Falls.
They sit on the boarder between Canada and the USA and their water comes from four of the five Great Lakes of North America – Lake Superior, Lake Mitchigan, Lake Huron and Lake Erie. The waters of the Falls flow into Lake Ontario.
The Niagara Falls and the surrownding areas are home to many birds, mamals and amphibians. With over 300 species of bird in the area, Canadian geese, great horned owls and woodpeckers make regular appearances.
Other birds, such as cardinals and chickadees, are found there all year round, while the swallow and purple martin like to arrive in spring and leave in autum.
