Bird Trail for Red Deer

       Bird trail some joker may say? Yeah birds run through the bush. Well, I'm telling bout a differnt bird trail.

      Bird trails have recently been designed  and become very popular. A bird trail is nothing more than a series of excellent bird siting areas that have been publicized and organized. Birders can then travel to these areas and see a larger number of birds without wasting time. Some of these trails have become very popular .

     The Red Deer River Naturalists (RDRN) are producing a map which will detail sites to visit within the city of Red Deer. Locals know where these spots are ,but the poor tourist comes to town and misses excellent birding opportunities.  Our brochures should be ready in April 2010 and be distributed to tourist bureaus. We also hope to have this information on our website


      We host a series of early morning bird walks in the spring. Check our Face Book Site and Http:// and get dates and times. We'd love to have you join us.

     In the coming year we will produce a birding trail guide which will feature the Central Alberta area. Again the locals know all of the good sites . This new material will make it easier for visitors to see the birds we have in this rich area.

     So join us or just come to the area on your own and enjoy the birds in this area.
