Come explore the fascinating world of birds!

The Office of Student Academic Services in collaboration with the Sonia Bujold Initiative and Let’s Talk Science at McGill University, has put together a lovely free online booklet of self-paced activities about birds.

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 even go birding in a forest reserve such as the Morgan Arboretum of McGill University’s Macdonald Campus in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue. You will discover the exciting world of birding! From birding tips, crafts, games and much more. There is something for everyone to enjoy!

  • For children and adults of all ages.
  • The activity booklet is available in both French and English.
  • Register now to receive your booklet on Tuesday April 2!
  • For questions or additional information, please contact ingrid.chiraz [at] mcgill.ca (Ingrid Chiraz).
  • Registrations will be accepted through April 1.
