4-day Cypress Hills Group Birding Tour – great for mountain and grassland bird species

Cypress Hills Group Birding Tour

Escorted self-driving tour

Join a small group of birders on a 4-day / 3-night Cypress Hills Group Birding Tour. We will visit the Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park region of SW Saskatchewan - the favourite birding hotspot for both visiting and local birders.

Some of the special unique birds of this region include MacGillivray’s Warbler, Dusky Flycatcher, Red-naped Sapsucker, Poorwill, Pacific Wren, Violet-Green Swallow. We also look for rare Cordilleran Flycatcher and Bullock’s Oriole found in the park in recent years. We plan to visit the west, central and east blocks of this birding hotspot.


Transportation: All participants will travel in their own personal or rented vehicle. Masks will be worn at birding stops.

Proposed Dates: Early June. If the weather forecast is poor, we may delay the tour by 1 or 2 days. By choosing a mid-week tour, we avoid the noise of weekend crowds.

Accommodation Options. Both camping and hotel accommodation options are available.

The cost of this small group tour and the exact itinerary is not yet fully known.

If interested, please email birdtours@sasktel.net as soon as possible and include the full names of interested participants, the type of vehicle(s) you plan to drive and indicate whether you prefer the camping or hotel option. The number of participants accepted on this group tour is limited.
