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

On our October walk we will expect to see a variety of late fall migrants and early winter arrivals both on land and on the lake. In addition, we may find one or both of the long-staying rarities in the park: a Yellow-crowned Night Heron and a Least Bittern. We put the Night-Heron on the September poster and saw it on our walk. Maybe the same luck will hold for the Otober walk as well!

 

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!
