  • Join one or more Saskatoon evening Bird tours led by Stan Shadick that will visit some of the best bird-rich parks in our city. Enjoy listening to the songs and sounds of Saskatoon birds.

    Observe their colours and behaviours.

    Novice bird watchers are especially welcome.

    Stan will point out the field marks used to identify each species seen or heard.

    Many of these Saskatoon Evening Bird Tours will visit the naturalized parks that the city has created to enhance bird habitats. Many of these parks have wheel-chair accessible walking trails offering excellent viewing and bird photography opportunities.

    During summer months from July through August over 100 Saskatoon bird species are regularly found in our parks.

    Some birds of interest include: Horned and Red-necked Grebes, 12 varieties of ducks, Spotted Sandpiper, Common and Black Terns, Downy Woodpecker, Eastern Kingbird, Warbling Vireo, Black-billed Magpie, House Wren, Gray Catbird, Brown Thrasher, Clay-colored, Vesper, Song and Savannah Sparrow, Yellow-headed Blackbird and Western Meadowlark, Yellow Warbler and Common Yellowthroat.

    A loaner pair of binoculars will be available to the first registrant who requests it in the comments section of the registration form.
