OFO Sault Ste. Marie Birding Festival

Day 2 - Saturday, May 29th, 7:00pm - 8:30pm



Daily recap of bird sightings and best photo award


Being a Young Birder – Sam Phaneuf

Ever wonder what inspires young birders? This presentation, prepared and presented by an 11 year old, highlights his most inspiring birding experiences and his thoughts on how to get kids involved in birding.

 

Intro to the Sault Naturalists

Members of the Sault Naturalists will provide some details on the history of the club, the outings and projects that they do, and how you can get involved.


Forest Birds as Indicators of Sustainable Forest Management – Dr. Lisa Venier, Canadian Forest Service


Forest birds are often used to understand how to improve forest management and support forest ecosystem health. Dr. Venier will describe some new approaches for measuring forest birds and mapping habitats as well as how data from the new Ontario Breeding Bird Atlas will help improve forest land management in Ontario.

** Please note that the schedule is subject to change.**

What to do during the day

Due to COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines, no formal birding outings will be taking place. Instead, birders are encouraged to go birding on their own (while following all relevant restrictions and guidelines) during the day. Make sure you check out the About Birding in SSM page at: ofo.ca/content/ssm-festival/ssm-birding page.

Post your pictures on Facebook and Instagram

Each evening, we will have a period where we can discuss what was seen earlier that day. There will be prizes for the best bird found and best bird photo taken during the festival within the Sault Ste. Marie Birding Area.

Use the hashtag #SSMBirdingFestival when submitting your photos to social media.
