View resident and migrant birds.
Each spring, migrant birds move through Canatara Park on their way to their nesting grounds. Walk with an expert birder to view resident and migrant birds.
The walk leader is Eric Marcum (519-332-6122). Eric is a long time birder with experience in the NE United States, northern Canada and many hours in and around Sarnia. Eric’s experience in hearing and identifying bird songs adds to the experience.
There are three walks scheduled starting on May 3 and continuing May 10 and May 17, 2017. Start time at 6:00 PM.
The walk, beginning at the main entrance to Tarzan Land (south-west corner of Christina St and Cathcart Blvd), is an easy one over flat chip covered paths and sidewalks.
The walk is open to everyone without charge. Binoculars are most useful. Photo opportunities exist throughout the tour.

Spring has arrived and many of our flights of fancy have turned to the skies and the colorful migrants which are slowly making their way north through Sarnia. When many people think of spring birding, journeys to the legendary Long Point and Point Pelee often come to mind. Although these places are brilliant for birding, you do not have to travel so far to see the wonders of spring migration. In fact, you don’t even have to leave the city. Canatara Park is a terrific spot to watch birds. (more…)
What is the fastest-growing leisure activity? Canoeing? Tennis? Shuffleboard?
No, the fastest-growing hobby is bird watching (or ‘birding’ as we who are hooked prefer to call it).
Most often, interest in birding begins with putting seeds out for the winter birds. Once you recognize that several species come to your feeder, you buy a book to help identify them. (more…)
