GREAT BIRDS! GREAT PEOPLE! GREAT FOOD!
Dorion's Canyon Country Birding Festival is for you!We had our inaugural year in 2009, and it was a great success. Organizers felt that with an area so rich in bird species
and natural beauty, birders would welcome the chance to attend a Birding Festival here...and after 8 years we are going strong.
The 2016 Festival was great! Although it was a rather dampish weekend, the spirits of the birders weren't affected one bit.
101 species were recorded with one of the highlights being a White-winged dove. Our list of birds will be updated soon.

prior to the official opening of the Festival. Guides will be at the parking area to
lead the hike. Those who attend are responsible for their own transportation, and are to return to the Dorion Community Centre by 8 a.m. for Registration and a delicious breakfast. There, they will join the rest of the birders for an official introduction and start to the day.
