As midnight approaches so does the time to register for the events you would like to attend during the Huron Fringe Birding Festival. February 1st is the first day for registration and since some of the events fill up quite quickly it would be good to get to your computer, log in and make sure you secure the events you are interested in!

Even if you see that some of the events you wanted to register for are full, don’t despair. There are many interesting events this year with leaders from the past festivals, new leaders, and leaders that have been giving people a chance to enjoy nature for many years. Their knowledge and expertise on several facets of nature will make it a VERY worthwhile time no matter what event you register for.

Take a look, pick your event, take a chance on something new, schedule yourself a time to thoroughly enjoy two wonderful weekends of spring.

The chill of winter has many birds far to the south enjoying the warmth of the sun while some of us are still here enjoying the birds that spend the winter with us.

It won’t be long until the migration north starts and the sounds and colour of migrating birds fills the woods and the meadows.
