• The West Island of Montreal holds the largest areas of green space and forest in the region, quite extensive shoreline and is surprisingly wildlife rich. In any one year, with a little effort and a touch of fortune, a birder might easily see in excess of 150 species of birds on the West Island and conceivably 200 or more. Not at all bad for a well populated peri-urban and suburban part of a major city. This guide has been written to concentrate on just the West Island plus a few immediately adjacent birding sites. The reader can print an individual trip-specific pages as required. This is a FREE download
  • A guide to the extensive trails in Canada's largest arboretum and to the almost 200 species of birds that have been recorded there has been written for both casual visitors and novice birders as well as for experienced birders. Many cities have more green space than does Montreal, but few have anything so close to the city centre that is on the scale of the Morgan Arboretum in which to wander and get close to the natural world.
