It’s Bird Week in Vancouver and the International Ornithological Congress has flown into town! Join us for an introductory bird tour at UBC Botanical Garden as we search for exciting birds and listen for their melodious calls. This event is family friendly and great for beginner birders. This tour will focus on identifying common birds of UBC Botanical Garden and the Vancouver Area and will highlight:

  • Bird shapes – how to identify bird families by their shape
  • Where different birds are found
  • How to create bird-friendly habitats around your home
  • What do cats have to do with birds?
