Beaver Creek Birding Tour Description
Beaver Creek is an attractive wooded valley with several walking trails. Here this creek flows into the South Saskatchewan River. Many native wildflowers may be found blooming here in summer. An indoor interpretive centre on site has displays and washrooms with running water.
During guided Beaver Creek birding tours, we usually select the trail with the best variety of songbirds. These hiking trails are relatively flat with stairs provided in the steeper portions.
During spring and summer months from mid-May through early-September over 60 species have been found during our Beaver Creek tours. Additional migrating songbirds may be seen in late May and late August / early September.
In winter, chickadees may land on your hand begging for food. Redpolls, woodpeckers and perhaps an eagle or ruffed grouse might also be found at Beaver Creek Conservation Area.
Novice and experienced bird watchers are especially welcome.
A loaner pair of binoculars may be available if requested.
This tour is particularly useful for blind and low-vision birders who wish to listen to bird songs from May - July.
Step-on Guide Service available for bus tours.
