"Wings over Canada" with Ian Wilson & Jacinthe Lavoie

  • Helen Schuler Nature Centre Indian Battle Road South Lethbridge, AB Canada (map)

Join authors and photographers Ian Wilson and Jacinthe Lavoie as they share their “travelogue with wings” and explore Canada one bird at a time, from shorebirds to songbirds, and raptors to waterfowl.

This colourful 45-minute presentation is a mix of vivid images and entertaining stories ... from watching the intricate mating ritual of cranes, to cedar waxwings feeding a nest of young birds, and pelicans diving for fish.  

After the presentation Ian and Jacinthe welcome questions about photography and the birds they have met along the way.
