Naturehood Club Fall Bird Walks

Upcoming Outings

Fall Bird Walks

Date: Tuesday mornings (September 13- ?)
Time: 7:00 AM – 7:45 AM
Location: Pollinator Garden (north end of Carleton Avenue)
Leader: Jennifer Neate

As we move into September and the days grow shorter, the fall migrants are starting to travel through Champlain Park. Come out and meet some of the resident and migrant birds of your naturehood on this family-friendly outing. Fall birds are notoriously challenging to identify with their faded plumage and lack of song. So, prepare to put your powers of observation to the test as we attempt to locate and identify migrants as they prepare for their long journey south. Bring your curiosity, a set of binoculars and a bird field guide, if you have one.

Registration is not required but if you would like to be notified of cancellations due to weather, feel free to send an email to with the subject: “Naturehood Outing.” You may also email me if you would like to be added to the Naturehood Club list to be informed of future events.

Naturehood Bird Walk Change – May 17

Naturehood Bird Walk – Tuesday, May 17

Please note that our start location has changed for this week. We will be meeting by the pollinator garden at the north end of Carleton Avenue, where it meets Pontiac Street, at the usual 7:00 am. This week promises to bring some new arrivals to the woods on the coming southerly winds. See you there!

From the drumming of the majestic Pileated Woodpecker to the flowering of the dainty Trout Lily in early spring, the Champlain Park naturehood abounds with an abundance of plants, fungi and animals living out their lives just outside your door.

Join the Naturehood community and discover some of your wild neighbours while connecting with other local nature-lovers. Outings will be announced on the website, listserv and Facebook page. All are welcome!
