Fall and Winter Birding Workshop

Saturday, October 21, 1-3PM

Fall and Winter Birding Workshop in High Park Details:

With summer well behind us and birds heading south, what’s left to excite the birders among us? Fall migration and winter birding can and does bring anything under the sun but you’ve got to be lucky to catch some rare sights. Winter can bring unusual species that predictably hang around as long as there’s food.

Join our birding workshop and learn how to find interesting birds even in fall and winter. Equipped with our cell phones and binoculars we’ll head out for a ramble through High Park with avian ecologist Bill McMartin.

Price:

  • General (ages 18-59 years): $30
  • Senior (ages 60 years and above): $20

Bill McMartin

Bill McMartin is a retired ecologist with a passionate interest in birdlife. He studied warblers in the boreal forest for his MSc and enjoyed research so much he kept rolling into a PhD program studying songbirds in southern Ontario’s fragmented forests. After graduating he wrote ecological reports for land trusts, governments and the private sector, often finding species at-risk birds.
