Custom tours and bird ID workshops available.

Our birding tours make excellent birthday gifts or anniversary birding gifts for birders interested in birds and nature.

Saskatoon is located where two major North American bird flyways meet. During the breeding season in June and July about 150 bird species occur within our nearby grassland, wetland and woodland habitats. This bird list is augmented during the migration months of May, August and September when boreal and arctic nesting warblers, flycatchers, vireos and shorebirds become plentiful.

"I drove to Saskatoon and met Stan Shadick who arranged for me to observe lekking Sharp-tailed Grouse. Stan set up a blind for me, enabling me to take photos in the early morning hours (04:10 to 08:00, Wednesday, May 5). It was a birding thrill for the year. " (L. C.)

That was such a great trip!  Thanks so much for the use of the blind and sharing your general knowledge and expertise. (J. L.)

"We really appreciated your tour last Wednesday; [Our young grandson] loved it!! He also told us he learned a lot.  I believe you have inspired him to continue his passion of birding.  Thanks again for the wonderful guiding!" (D.D. )
