Boyd Park Bird Walks (Early Bird & Late Risers)

START TIME: 7:00 AM & 9:30 AM

Please join us for the annual HVHTA spring bird hike.

  • two starting times:  7 am for “early birders” and 9:30 am for “late risers”
  • refreshments:  in between hikes, at around 9 am, coffee & treats at Joanne’s home

We will take a slow walk through the forest, along the East Humber, and into the main section of Boyd Conservation Area.

Please wear layers of light clothing with long sleeves and long pants for the mosquitos, preferably in muted colours. Waterproof footwear is recommended—grass is always wet in the morning.

If you have bug repellent, please check with leader before spraying it on – she is allergic to many brands, but will bring some of the stuff she can tolerate for others to use.

If you have binoculars, bring them along as well; Joanne will bring a bird book.

No dogs please.


Start and finish at 4685 Rutherford Road in Woodbridge (south side of Rutherford Road between the East Humber River and Pine Valley Drive).

If possible, approach from the west, as it is a very difficult left turn with no left turn lane (you can go past the driveway and turn around at the lights at the top of the hill if you are approaching from the east).

Coming down the driveway (going into the woods) pass the first house on your right, and take the right fork to Joanne’s house.

DURATION: 1.5 hrs & 1.5 hrs

HIKE LEADER: Joanne Nonnekes
