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
October Walk: Saturday, October 4th
9:00am - 11:00am at Colonel Samuel Smith Park
Leader: Andrew Keaveney
Meet in the south parking lot (where the road ends) of Colonel Samuel Smith Park. MAP
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).
