The warm sun shines light on the birds of summer! Now in their summer breeding and foraging grounds, dozens of bird species are singing in courtship, preparing nests, and rearing little baby birds in Stanley Park. From tree swallows keeping busy in their nest boxes to a family of awkward, brave ducklings, we are surrounded by new life. Come out and see the action on our monthly bird walk, Birds of a Feather! This month, Langara College Instructor, Paul Preston, takes us on a relaxed, interpretive walk to spot and identify local birds with our eyes and ears. All experience and knowledge levels are welcome – just bring your curiosity and love of birds!

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.
