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.

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) to download the new, revised 2015 version including 193 species that have been seen on CCFEW walks since 1997.

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!
