Come Birding with Me as we explore birding and biodiversity on a free guided walk for the BIPOC community.
Led by Yousif Attia, Birds Canada staff and national citizen science program coordinator, this walk will introduce you to the birds found at Terra Nova Rural Park in Richmond. Together you will search for Anna’s Hummingbirds, Northern Harriers and if lucky, the elusive Virginia Rail.
This program will meet at the Community Garden parking lot at Terra Nova Rural Park located here.
Please try to arrive at least 15 minutes in advance of the program.
This program is a part of the Birding with Me series, collaboratively organized by the Canadian Wildlife Service and Stanley Park Ecology Society, and supported by Birds Canada.
About your Bird Guide
Yousif began obsessively studying wildlife at an early age, especially birds and mammals, and that eventually turned into a career as a field biologist. He currently works at Birds Canada coordinating national citizen science programs: the Christmas Bird Count and eBird in Canada. Yousif also leads birding and natural history tours for Canadian-based Eagle-Eye Tours and he is always eager to share his enthusiasm with others.
