Long Point has been an important focal point on birds and their migrations with studies done by scientific organizations as the Long Point Bird Observatory. Long Point as a reserve for wildlife, does have human impact on bird species. Birds have long worked their biological clocks on this Earth, which, like the Earth, their behaviour relates directly to the Sun.
