Prince Edward Bird Observatory hosts virtual birding month

Jessica Bao shows a great comparison of a male and female Northern Flicker. The male has the black “moustache” below the bill, the female does not.

PEPtBO’s celebration of the return of birds for the past 10 years is the Spring Birding Festival, which this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is going virtual for the first time with webinars, free nature activities and readings and more with the Prince Edward County Public Libraries.

This year’s roster of speakers and presenters will capture the magic of spring in the County and also provide some hands-on family fun through PEPtBO’s Get Out! Kids’ Club.

A month-long webinar series offers eight sessions, seven free of charge. A $20 registration fee per connection offers exclusive access to keynote speaker Julia Zarankin, best-selling author of “Field Notes from an Unintentional Birder”.

All month, PEPtBO’s Get Out! Kids’ Club program will feature nature fun to download, such as a Bird Behaviours Scavenger Hunt and The Top Five Nature Challenge. Free Family Birding Kits with activities, a PEC birding map, sketch book and junior birding journal are also available through PEPtBO’s Naturehood program.  Click here to see the PEPtBO Get Out Kids’ Club on Facebook
