Native & Migrant Birds of PEI

Welcome to our Nature Guide section on Birds!

We do a lot of activities here at the Macphail Woods concerning songbirds and the role they play in forest habitats. This includes yearly breeding bird surveys, owl walks, bird banding program, as well as giving general birdwatching tours. In previous seasons, we have located and monitored such bird nests such as woodpeckers, hummingbird’s and thrush’s to name a few.



As you scroll through our guides, you’ll notice some guides have more information or better photos than others. We are always looking to increase the quality and accessibility of our nature guides.

If you are interested in helping us improve these guides, whether through photos, research, writing or website development, then please contact us via phone: (902) 651-2575 or email: danielmcrae@macphailwoods.org
