CCFEW organizes a series of 8 to 10 bird walks through the year at Toronto waterfront parks. Winter walks are normally held at Humber Bay, while spring and fall walks are at Colonel Sam Smith Park. The walks are lead by experienced birders and are free for anyone who is interested in attending. Everyone is welcome! All walks are on weekends.

This is always an interesting part of spring migration: it’s near the end of the first wave of early migrants, just as the warblers and other late migrants are beginning to arrive.
May Walks: Saturday, May 24th
As part of Colonel Samuel Smith Park Spring Bird Festival, there will be hourly walks starting at 8:00, 9:00, 10:00, 11:00.
Meet at the registration tent, on the main pathway, near the parking lot.
The festival will also include a wide variety of displays and activities to engage all ages. Check our Activites page for mare details.
Walks are held rain, or shine!
