Full Day Birdwatching Tours

A Day with the Birds

On your full day birdwatching tour, you have the choice of birding in Banff or birding in Yoho.

Birding in Banff
Our proposed itinerary includes a number of spots near Banff town: Werner’s Stables, Vermilion Lakes, Johnson Lake. We’ll be on the lookout for a mix of ducks, forest songbirds, some agricultural specialists, and possibly woodpeckers and raptors.

We’ll also tour up the Bow Valley Parkway (1A), with stops at roadside viewpoints (woodpeckers, flycatchers and warblers), Johnston Canyon (American dippers and possibly black swifts), the Castle Junction bridge (ospreys), and Storm Mountain Lodge (rufous hummingbirds).

Custom Full Day Birding:
Joel can tailor the day to specific habitats or birds you are interested in. Destinations may include alpine areas that involve more hiking.

Birding in Yoho
In Yoho, we visit the village of Field (swallows, hummingbirds, “backyard” birds), the Field Backroad (warblers and thrushes), the wetland at the Yoho Ranch (ducks, ospreys, herons).

We’ll also make a side trip to Emerald Lake, to look for flycatchers, woodpeckers, swallows and the iconic common loon.
