Bird Song ID Walks

Registration is open for two Bird Song ID walks with ornithologist, Art Martell.

Wednesday, May 31st and Sunday, June 25th, time TBA

Art will lead a slow walk through the forest focusing on birdsong identification. Please note the walk may be cancelled, or rescheduled, if the weather is too poor for birding (e.g., rain, high winds).

Dr. Art Martell is retired in the Comox Valley and is the Volunteer Caretaker for the K’omoks Important Bird Area. Before retirement, Art worked as a wildlife research scientist and manager with Canadian Wildlife Service and Environment Canada.  He has had a cabin on Hornby for over 30 years.

Cost: $10 for adults. Children free. Pre-registration is essential as space is limited. Email to register.
