About your Bird Guide
My name is Paul Preston and I am a Biology Lab Instructor at Langara College in Vancouver. I have been big on birds since I was a kid and did my MSc in Ornithology in 2013 studying the behaviour of the Common Poorwill. I am also the BC Regional Coordinator of the Nightjar Survey Program with Birds Canada and am super interested in nocturnal creatures of all kinds as well as citizen science. In addition to birding, I also spend time playing video games, table top games and watching RuPaul. As an openly gay man living downtown, I am often finding opportunities for birding community to be scarce and hopefully we can change that!
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.
