BIRDING HOTLINE - WELLBIRDS
Join our Wellington County birding email hotline. Simply email us at email@example.com and say "sign me up"!
While you're at it, why not sign up for our store email newsletter? Each month a different backyard bird is featured, along with tips on how to attract them. Sign up at Get Email News.
Bi-weekly outings on Thursdays explore any area in south-western Ontario & alternate Wednesday outings explore local birding areas.
All hikes are weather permitting and are all-day outings. Weather in target area will determine whether these trips are a go or no-go. Please dress appropriately. Return to Guelph will be some time around 4-5pm. We will try to lunch at local restaurants if possible, however feel free to bring a lunch or your own refreshments. Note departure times beside each hike.
All hikes leave from the Wild Birds Unlimited parking lot, in front of the store. Any more questions, give us a call at the store (519-821-2473)!
