Toronto Bird Celebration

The TOC is a partner in the first ever Toronto Bird Celebration, a three week long city-wide event series all about birds. Fifteen partner organizations are collaborating to put on over 35 events throughout Toronto, from theatre performances to dawn chorus workshops. Please view the Celebration information at www.torontobirdweek.ca, and look at our events listing.

As part of the Toronto Bird Celebration (www.torontobirdweek.ca), Bird Studies Canada is sponsoring a FREE performance of Tom Allen's "The Last Curlew". Tom Allen is best known as the host of CBC Radio 2's "Shift", and he has come out with a moving performance piece based on the classic book "Last of the Curlews" by beloved Toronto author and birder Fred Bodsworth. This show combines storytelling with music and dance and tells the heartbreaking tale of the last Eskimo Curlew on earth on his last migration ever. The show will be held at St. Demetrius Ukrainian Orthodox Church at 3338 Lakeshore Avenue West; register for your ticket here. The show will be on May 27th at 3:00pm, directly after the Colonel Sam SMith birding festival. The performance venue is within walking distance of the park.
