Events & Activities :: Club Activities :: Birding
The Probus Birding Group outings focus on the great spring migration of birds and their breeding period during the months of April, May and June. During that time we will go out every week or two on a schedule that attempts to coincide with the peak of bird activity.
We also take occasional excursions at other times of year. These might include a fall trip to see hundreds of cranes staging for their fall migration, or a trip for winter specialties such as Snowy Owls.
Outings may last an hour or two at local areas, or be a day trip away to special birding spots. We generally take our lunches on the daytrips. We encourage car-pooling.
Participants should wear comfortable walking shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. We do not do strenuous or fast-paced walking. It is a casual stroll, keeping our eyes and ears peeled for birds.
Binoculars are a must. The leaders have spotting scopes and field guides and keep a tally of the species seen. You may wish to bring a camera for occasional photographic opportunities.
An email notice will be sent out to the Birding Group members prior to each outing providing specific details for the outing arrangements.
