Past Programs

Whenever possible, DFO records monthly programs (and occasionally a Better Birding Skills workshop) and makes the recording available here. If the program was recorded, a video icon appears next to the program title. Click the icon to view the program in a new browser tab. Please note that some presenters do not allow their programs to be recorded and some presenters only allow DFO to share the recording for a limited time period. However, a review of each monthly program can always be found in the next issue of The Lark Bunting. Also be sure to check out Bird Bombs which are short helpful bursts of ID information.
