Ottawa’s first-ever Bird Fair is just 10 short days away and we have a growing list of local groups, organizations, outfitters and people who will bring their knowledge, talent and enthusiasm to Bird Fair to help us welcome back our birds.
Stop by their booth to chat with group members about the four birds of prey that will be at the Fair: Red-Tailed Hawk, Barn Owl, Great-Horned Owl and American Kestrel. Be sure to swing by the main stage at 12:45pm and 2:10 for a flight demonstration!

If you’re wondering what will attract birds to your yard, look no further than Wild Birds Unlimited’s booth. You’ll have a chance to talk with the knowledgeable folks at Wild Birds Unlimited about the right feeder and seed types for your area.
Feast your eyes on local wildlife photographer Stephen J Stephen’s lovely portraits of waterfowl that call the Lac Deschênes Important Bird Area home. Stop by his booth to have a gander at his photographs for sale.
