Saskatoon Bird Guide

Volunteer Birding Guide for Living Sky Wildlife Re
Birding has been my hobby for over 50 years having started at the age of 6. I have volunteered with the Saskatoon Nature Society and Nature Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Breeding Bird Atlas project organized by Birds Canada.

Now that I am recently retired from teaching astronomy at the University of Saskatchewan, I get to spend more time birding. I particularly enjoy showing visitors to Saskatchewan our unique prairie birds.

To this end, I am now volunteering my time to lead birding tours out of Saskatoon for visiting birders on behalf of our local Living Sky Wildlife Rehabilitation charity. Last week, I was thrilled to be able to show visiting naturalists from Calgary over 10% of the Canadian population of Whooping Cranes as they fed in wheat fields near Saskatoon.

I look forward to reading birding reports from other birders on this forum.

I would like to post a link description to "Birding Resources" describing a reference bird book that our provincial nature society has recently published. I would also like to post a link description to International Travel about tours offered by a wildlife charity.

How can I do that?
I don't see any New Thread buttons on those pages.
