Whether you're curious about those birdwatchers you see with the giant lenses and scopes, are already a birder yourself who's looking for tips, or if you just love a good adventure story, come to the Humber Arboretum on Wednesday, May 16 at 6 p.m. for a free talk by Ontario Big Year record-holder Jeremy Bensette! Point Pelee area birder and naturalist Bensette had a very successful year in 2017, travelling to the far reaches of Ontario in pursuit of every bird species he could possibly cross paths with. This presentation touches on many of the highlights, lowlights, statistics, results, and antics of his very social birding journey that set a new provincial record!

This event is co-presented by the Humber Arboretum and Bird Studies Canada as part of the Toronto Bird Celebration running May 12-27, 2018.

The talk is approximately an hour then will be followed by an informal Q&A or, weather-permitting, a tour of the Humber Arboretum grounds with Jeremy.
