About your Bird Guide
Hello! My name is Andrew and I’m currently a biologist at the Canadian Wildlife Service. Growing up in Taipei and Vancouver, I never took notice of the wildlife around me despite always being surrounded by the water and mountains. It wasn’t until university that I started noticing the diversity of birds and other wildlife around me, and that you really don’t have to go far from your house to see them. Did you know that Richmond isn’t just about eating delicious dumpling soup noodles or taking a stroll in a fishing wharf? At Iona, you will be dazzled by the diversity and abundance of birds! This 2-hour trip at Iona will start out by a visit to a banding station to see songbirds close-up, followed by a bird walk through the marshes, beaches, and forests. I look forward to meeting you all!
