About your Bird Guide
Yousif began obsessively studying wildlife at an early age, especially birds and mammals, and that eventually turned into a career as a field biologist. He currently works at Birds Canada coordinating national citizen science programs: the Christmas Bird Count and eBird in Canada. Yousif also leads birding and natural history tours for Canadian-based Eagle-Eye Tours and he is always eager to share his enthusiasm with others.
Birding with Me is a part of the Vancouver Bird Celebration and organized collaboratively by Stanley Park Ecology Society, Canadian Wildlife Service, Birds Canada, and the BC Bird Trail. Thank you so much to the Port of Vancouver for funding this series.

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
