Bird Walks
[Home] [Activities] [Bird Walks]

CCFEW organizes a series of 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

Saturday, March 21st CANCELLED
9:00 am - 11:00 am at Colonel Samuel Smith Park

After much deliberation we have decided to cancel this walk. Although it seems like a very low risk activity, it would not be possible for the group to maintain the social distance recommended by health authorities.

Saturday, April 25th
9:00 am - 11:00 am at Colonel Samuel Smith Park

Meet in the south parking lot (where the road ends) at 9:00  MAP
Leader: Bob Yukich

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) 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”.
