Tour Guide: Stan Shadick. Click for more information about your tour guide.


Stanley was as polite, informative, and knowledgeable as you could want in a guide for this kind of tour. We spent about two hours moving up and down a trail along the river at a leisurely pace while he picked out different birds either by their song or by catching sight of them flying by us. He had a wealth of knowledge about the different birds we spotted, some of the other wildlife in the area, and of Saskatoon too. I was curious about his interest and background in birding and he was happy to chat about it which was really interesting. His passion for birds and birding comes through in spades and I'd recommend this tour to anyone. C. Nolan, Ireland
