Bird Walks

CCFEW organizes a series of 10 bird walks through the year at Toronto waterfront parks. Colonel Sam Smith Park will be the primary location for our walks until construction is complete at Humber Bay 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 23, at Colonel Samuel Smith Park

Leader: Marc Lichtenberg

Meet at the entrance of south parking lot (where the road ends) at 9:00  MAP


Saturday, April 27, at Colonel Samuel Smith Park

Leader: David Creelman

Meet at the entrance of south parking lot (where the road ends) at 9:00  MAP

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.

Our walks are sponsored by:


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”.
