Uplands Park and Oak Bay are on the ancestral territory of the Lekwungen people, known today as the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations. We respect and honour their vital relationship with these lands and waters and how they have cared for them through countless generations, continuing to the present and into the future.
This month’s bird walk, led by FOUP’s expert birder Geoffrey Newell, will be tomorrow February 18th.
Meet at 8:00AM at Cattle Point, dress for the weather and bring binoculars if you can.
Geoffrey’s interesting fact: “Did you know that Violet-green, Tree, and Barn Swallows are among our first returning spring migrants, arriving as early as February? Meanwhile, Anna’s Hummingbirds and Great Horned Owls are already starting the nesting process!”
