Bird Week in Vancouver May 4 to 11

Spring is here and migratory birds have begun to arrive. This is a great time to get out and see them. Some species have flown all the way from Central America and Mexico. Migratory Bird Week is your opportunity to get to know more about them. The City of Vancouver and several partner organizations interested in birds are putting on walks in many local parks, talks at the Vancouver Library and more. You can see the times and places by going to the Stanley Park Ecology Society web site.  I will be at the proclamation at the Stanley Park heron colony by the Park Board Office on May 4 and speaking on ‘Society of Crows’ at the main library in the evening of May 11. This talk has proved to be very popular with audiences. It delves into the intelligence of crows with some amusing stories, explores their nesting behaviour and thieving ways, and ends with the rush hour exodus of thousands of crows from Vancouver to an evening roost.
