Registration and Rates:
Burrell Birding services are meant to be customized to our customer’s needs, so in most cases we’ll prepare a quote for your request within a day of you contacting us. If you’re interested in a particular species, species group, or particular non-birds, be sure to let us know and we’ll make sure our service is geared towards your interest(s).
In general, Burrell Birding tours are typically half or full day trips. Half day trips are generally 4 hours in duration, and full-day trips are generally 8 hours in duration.
For tours, the cost will cover transportation, entrance fees, all taxes, as well as professional guiding. Payment is due at the beginning of all trips, either in the form of cash, cheque, or interac e-transfer. For larger trips we may require a deposit.
Pick-up and drop-off is available upon request. It is recommended for small groups to travel directly with Mike and Ken, allowing each participant to relax and enjoy themselves for the duration of the trip.
What to Bring
Well, that depends on the trip! We’ll be outside for at least part of the trip, so dress for the conditions. Dressing in layers is the best strategy, especially since the weather can change through the day. We’ll advise you beforehand of the expected trip-specific conditions (weather, bugs, sun, etc.) you are likely to encounter.
You’ll want to bring your binoculars and camera and spotting scope if you have one. We have limited extra pairs of good quality binoculars. Field guides and a spotting scope will be available from the leaders for participants to use.
For full day outings we’ll stop somewhere for lunch, though you should bring snacks and water. Some areas we’ll visit have limited opportunities to purchase refreshments once we begin, and you’ll be advised beforehand if that is the case.
