For the Love of Birds!

An online activity by Sonia Bujold Initiative at McGill University – Macdonald Campus

What is it about birds that captivates us? Is it the fact that they come in a fantastical array of shapes and sizes or in all the colors of the rainbow or that they can fly? Do you wish that you were a bird to be able to soar over the trees and see the world from their point of view?

We may not be able to fly in the sky but we can watch them fly. You are never too young or too old to start bird watching. It can be done from the comfort of your home, looking out your window to observe the birds gathering around your feeder, or going for a walk on your street or to your neighbourhood park. If you are feeling adventurous, you can go birding in a nature reserve such as the Morgan Arboretum of McGill University’s Macdonald Campus in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue. Join us in for this online activity which will introduce you to the exciting world of birding!
