Bird Banding with Rocky Point Bird Observatory
The weather is changing and the birds are moving. Come learn all about birds and see them in the hand!  Rocky Point Bird Observatory (RPBO) has a bird banding station and a fabulous education program where we will go for a guided walk to learn bird watching basics, visit a touch table with bird nests, eggs, feathers and bones, and last but not least, watch ecological monitoring in action through a bird banding demonstration to learn all about how and why we band birds.
For more information visit
Location: Pedder Bay, Metchosin. Meet and park at the Pedder Bay RV Resort and Marina at the end of Pedder Bay Drive (925 Pedder Bay Drive off Rocky Point Road).  Turn right just before the Marina parking lot and park in the grassy area.
Allow approximately 45 minutes driving time from Victoria.

Explorer Day Etiquette:

  • Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
  • Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
  • Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
