Learn the basics of birding from expert birder Emily Rondel! This 2-part workshop will teach how to identify birds by sight and sound, how to use a field guide and binoculars to their maximum potential, and where to look for them in Toronto’s biggest park and beyond. Practice your new skills with a guided birding hike to a few of the birding hotspots in High Park, while enjoying the beautiful fall colours. The hike is moderate in difficulty.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Learn the basics of birding
  • Identify birds by sight and sound
  • Go on a Guided Birding Hike in High Park
