May 4: Herons, Hummingbirds, and Hawks of Bowen Island

Because WVSS closed the Community School on February 9th (because of the weather) we had to cancel this event for that day. We’ve now rescheduled.

Our 2019 speaker series will continue on May 4th with a talk by Sue Ellen Fast on “Herons, Hummingbirds, and Hawks of Bowen Island”.

Find out about Bowen’s special birdlife, with the help of the Bowen Nature Club’s checklist, slides, and a few bones and feathers. Catch the latest about our nesting colony of Great Blue Herons, still producing chicks after twenty years, in spite of everything. A conservation success story worthy of such a such a beautiful and protected part of the world!

Winter birds include hummingbirds these days, along with dramatic flocks of sea ducks. Share observations about how birdlife on Bowen has changed, and take a checklist away to use on the trails.
