Our guided bird walks are up and running again! Keep an eye on our blog for more information and future locations and dates. Please make sure you are aware of any Covid-related restrictions including the mask policy and social distancing while participating.
We have been hosting weekly bird walks for over 20-years in the Nanaimo area of Vancouver Island. Our walks are scheduled for Sundays (Nanaimo) and Tuesdays (Parksville/ Qualicum), and we post all scheduling information on our blog.
The Sunday Bird Walk leaves the Birdstore at 9 a.m. on Sunday Mornings. The Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday Bird Walk meet up location has changed. We now meet at the Parksville Tourist Information Center parking lot by Highway 19, Northwest Bay Rd. and Franklin's Gull Rd. in Parksville, also at 9 a.m. The Tuesday Bird Walk is not held during the summer months (July & August) but it resumes the first Tuesday in September. There is no charge for our bird walks, and they are designed to conclude before lunch (average approximately 2 hours). Want more information? Call the store at 250-390-3669 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: We decide on the location of each bird walk the week before the scheduled bird walk outing. During the week we compile information about what birds are being seen and examine the weather forecast to ensure the walk is scheduled for the most productive location.
