“I can’t wait to register for the PEPtBO Spring Birding Festival! After this winter, I am SO ready. I’m looking forward to this new experience, and am practicing my birding skills here at home. Many thanks to all the PEPtBO folks for making this event happen, and thanks also for the Go Birding section of your website, it’s really helpful!”

For ten years, the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory and community partners have been celebrating spring migration with its Spring Birding Festival.

This year, in the wake of Covid19, the SBF is going virtual for the first time. Nevertheless, our roster of speakers and presenters will capture the magic of spring in The County and also provide some hands-on family fun through our Get Out! Kids’ Club.

Together with our amazing presenters and community partners, we have built a month-long webinar series offering eight sessions, seven of them are free! A modest registration fee per connection gives you exclusive access to our keynote speaker, Julia Zarankin, best-selling author of “Field Notes from an Unintentional Birder”.

Take a look at the program and then register for each:
