Fees start at $100 and vary depending on length, location and group size.
We also provide special activities on request (games for children for example). Please ask for details. Extra fees may apply.
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 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.
What to expect? 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.
