Folk BIRDS (Nor‘Folk Birding In Real-life Done Slowly) at Birds Canada National Headquarters

Leaders: Kathy Jones, Natasha Barlow

Trip Description: Meet 10:00 a.m. at the Birds Canada Headquarters in Port Rowan. We call this event ‘Folk BIRDS (Nor‘Folk Birding In Real-life Done Slowly). Join our hosts Kathy Jones and Natasha Barlow for an unrushed, relaxing event embracing nature through the lens of birds and their habitats. On this journey of bird discovery, we see how some of these fascinating creatures fly, feed, nest and use the habitats available at Birds Canada Headquarters, one of Norfolk County’s most accessible birding hotspots. The group will enjoy the sights and sounds from the wide accessible deck and we may wander slowly down the gravel trail to the fully accessible blind that overlooks Long Point’s inner bay.
