Weekly Bird Walks



It's on, the weekly bird walks are starting again this weekend. For those interested, our bird walks go out Sunday mornings in Nanaimo and Tuesday mornings and in the Parksville, Qualicum Beach area. The walks are easy and go for two to three hours (back for lunch is the plan). Bring binoculars, a field guide and prepare in case the weather changes. The walks are weather pending so not so nice days, please check our blog (www.thebirdstore.blogspot.com) for any cancelations.

Our first walk this Sunday September 11 is going to Neck Point Park.

Meet at The Backyard Wildbird & Nature Store at 9:00am or at the picnic tables by the parking lot at 9:15 am. Weather cooperating.

On Tuesday September 13, the bird walk will be going to Columbia Beach.

Meet at the Parksville Tourist Information Center parking lot, located by Hwy 19A, Northwest Bay Road and Franklin’s Gull Road in Parksville, at 9:00 am or meet at the parking area located on Admiral Tryon Blvd (Hwy 19A, right on Columbia Drive and drive to the end, turn right on Admiral Tryon Blvd) at 9:15am. Weather cooperating.

Look forward to seeing you out on the walks, Colin.

General information on our bird walks can be found on our website, and if you have any additional questions feel free to stop by or give us a call.
