About your bird guide, Paul Preston:

“My name is Paul Preston and I am a Biology Lab Instructor at Langara College in Vancouver. I have been big on birds since I was a kid and did my MSc in Ornithology in 2013 studying the behaviour of the Common Poorwill. I am also the BC Regional Coordinator of the Nightjar Survey Program with Birds Canada and am super interested in nocturnal creatures of all kinds as well as citizen science. In addition to birding, I also spend time playing video games, table top games and watching RuPaul. As an openly gay man living downtown, I am often finding opportunities for birding community to be scarce and hopefully we can change that!”


This event is part of Vancouver Bird Week’s series of in-person bird walks for the LGBTQ+ community, women, birders of colour, Mandarin and Cantonese speakers, and youth. Due to Covid-19, this guided bird walk is capped at 6 participants and will follow social distancing guidelines. No worries if you don’t have binoculars! Sanitized binoculars will be available for use. Masks and other face coverings are encouraged.
