Join us for our 2016 Bird Day!

Join Nature Canada in celebrating International Migratory Bird Day on Bird Day at Brewer Park in Ottawa, on May 14, 2016 starting at 10am.

International Migratory Bird Day is an annual celebration to raise public awareness about migratory birds and to provide information on ways to support their conservation. This year’s event will also mark the centenary of the signing of the Migratory Bird Convention, a legislative agreement made between Canada and the United States to protect and conserve migratory birds.

There will be a spectacular and unforgettable live birds-of-prey demonstration, guided bird walks around Brewer Park led by expert naturalists, as well as words of welcome from Canada’s first ornithologist MP, Mr. Richard Cannings, and City Councillor David Chernushenko, all hosted by popular CBC radio personality Giacomo Panico. Local groups conducting important bird conservation actions will be present and ready to present their efforts.
