Birding

The Arboretum is one of the hot spots for birds on the Island of Montreal. Betsy McFarlane from Bird Protection Quebec provides useful information about what to see and where you are most likely to see it in her bird finder notes. A more extensive birding guide by Richard Gregson is also available for a small fee.
