Brian Wesley, a local birding enthusiast, has been a resident of the valley for the past 10 years. Brian has participated in numerous birding studies: British Columbia Breeding Bird Atlas, Saskatchewan Breeding Bird Atlas, Wildlife Canada Services Lewis’ Woodpecker Studies and the Columbia Wetlands Waterbird Survey. He remains an active birder, completing annual Birds Canada Nightjar Survey, BC and Yukon Owl Survey and Wildlife
Canada Services North American Breeding Bird Survey. He is a member of the Wings Over the Rockies Board.
His guided walks are always popular at the Wings Festival. His extensive knowledge of the environment opens up discussion far beyond birds. His walks take in everything from history and geology, to wildlife of all kinds. His interesting anecdotes help the information stick. His introduction to the sounds around you is both amazing and helpful. Brian’s low key leadership style makes participation comfortable for newcomers and experienced nature
