About Your Guides

Saturday Mornings @ PENS

Join us from 7am to 10 am for a guided bird walk every Saturday morning in  May and June 2020. These hikes are by voluntary donation.  Read birding reports from past hikes.

GUIDED HIKES

Since the COVID-19 restrictions, Sutton Birds has partnered with Nature Nerding to offer  guided hikes for families, children, adults and seniors.
$50 – 1 hour
$90 – 2 hours
$120 – 3 hours

We also provide special activities on request (games for children for example). Please ask for details. Extra fees may apply.

Call 450-204-6847 or click here to book an excursion.

Who can come? Open to all ages, French and English. Feel free to invite others to join your group to help share the cost. We will respect the government measures as they evolve. For now it is maximum 10 people and maximum 3 families (including the guide).

What to Bring? Binoculars if you have.

Where will we go? We are incredibly lucky to live in such a rich area, teaming with life and diversity. We are familiar with the area and can suggest appropriate locations. It can be on nature trails, in a park, neighbourhood or your own backyard! We are also open to doing hikes anywhere in the Eastern Townships.

Birding hikes

Birding is done both visually and by ear. Your guide will recognize almost all birds by their songs even if they are not seen. Guides are bilingual. Birders will typically see or hear 12 to 30 species. No guarantees though. The weather and seasons affect bird activity and our ability to observe them.

Nature observation

Have you ever been on a walk in the woods and said to yourself, “That flower is beautiful, I wonder what it’s called…” or “That looks like an animal track, who could have left it there”? Nature Nerding Excursions will help you learn how to go about answering those questions. Meant as an initiation to the more common species of plants and animals, these excursions help you hone your observation skills so every walk in the woods is an exciting exploration filled with discovery and wonder.

Homeschoolers

If you are currently homeschooling and interested in linking a hike or excursion to the curriculum you are teaching, get in touch! A birding hike or nature excursion is a great educational activity. There are also possibilities for integrating various subjects into an excursion. For more details, contact Jess by email at:
