Beginner Bird ID Workshop



Join Birds Canada’s Saskatchewan Breeding Bird Atlas Coordinator LeeAnn Latremouille for an online Beginner Bird ID workshop.

Aimed at beginners, the hour-long workshop will cover the basic tools used in bird watching, the fundamentals of bird identification, and an overview of some of the major groups of birds found in Saskatchewan and the Canadian Prairies.

Keep an eye out on the SK Breeding Bird Atlas Facebook page and on our Upcoming Events page for other workshops in the future and for other online events. We are looking into making recordings of the workshops available online, so stay tuned for that.

Monthly Program

Due to the Covid19 situation monthly meetings have changed to a virtual platform for the 2020 – 2021 season. If you want to participate please be sure your membership is up to date.

Listen, learn and share ideas with people who are passionate about our natural world.

Monthly Meetings

Since the University of Saskatchewan remains closed to the public and with ongoing public health concerns, we will no longer be having live in-person general meetings but will move online to virtual presentations. These meetings will still include announcements from the president. If anyone has an announcement or notice, please contact the president at least 2 days before the scheduled general meeting, which is often the third Thursday of the month. For security purposes and ease of distribution, we will be sending the Zoom information for our general meetings to current members (who have registered an email) only. Please remind previous members to renew their membership and encourage new interested members to join us on this year’s learning experiences. We also continue to have field trips available to members only and by contacting the respective leaders.
