Bird Walks

[Home] [Activities] [Bird Walks]

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. 

Future Bird Walk Dates

April Walk: Saturday, April 26th 

9:00am - 11:00am at Colonel Samuel Smith Park

Leader: Bob Yukich

Meet in the south parking lot (where the road ends) of Colonel Samuel Smith Park. MAP

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!

 

Free copies of the CCFEW Bird Checklist are available at all of our walks, but if you would like to print your own copy, click here (pdf).

The ongoing sponsor of our bird walks is Birds & Beans, a Mimico roaster and retailer of “Bird Friendly ®” coffee. Most people don’t give it much thought, but the way coffee is grown can have a huge impact on the ecosystems of the producing countries, and the quality of life of their citizens. You can learn more from the Birds & Beans website, or by doing a search on “shade grown coffee”.

As of March, 2012, certified Bird Friendly® (BF) coffee has hit and passed the 10 million pound mark!
