Experience prairie songbirds and water birds during a 2-hour hike over prairie trails. Chappell Marsh Conservation Area contains a large pond surrounded by wolf willow and buffaloberry shrubs and grassland. It is located just outside Saskatoon’s boundaries. The level hiking trails offer good opportunities for observing a variety of songbirds and wildflowers.
During guided tours, we usually select the trails with the best variety of songbirds. The trails are relatively flat and mowed for easy walking.
During spring and summer months from mid-May through early-September over 80 species have been found at this location. Some birds of interest include: Gadwall, Redhead, Red-necked Grebe, American Avocet, Willet, Black-billed Magpie, Purple Martin, Gray Catbird, Brown Thrasher, Clay-colored, Vesper and Savannah Sparrow, Yellow-headed Blackbird and Western Meadowlark. Additional migrating songbirds may be seen in late May and late August / early September.
