Monday, March 6th 9:30am "Listening for Dinosaurs" Bryon Thompson and Freda Eckstein, beloved Cowichan Valley musicians and educators, were approached by a teacher to assemble a “virtual” birding tour. Somenos Marsh was the chosen location due to its easy accessibility, proximity to Duncan City and because it's a beacon of the importance of protecting critically endangered wetlands and their inhabitants. Non-members please
email cvns@naturecowichan.net for the zoom link.

We hope you enjoy the fun entertaining and visually impressive approach this short film provides toward discovering something new about these birds and their incredibly important habitat in our area. Sit down, relax and contemplate.

Along with playing together as “Huckleberry Holler”, both are active in bands such as “Turnip the Beet”, “Uke’s Misbehavin” and “Woodgrove Way”.

They are however, very successful photographers as well. Bryon has worked as a professional naturalist and teacher and has taught photography and birding classes, and music for years. His “nature stills” are well sought after. Freda is an avid videographer and an excellent editor. Together they are a duo that produces well executed, informative and visually stunning results.

The WildWings Nature & Arts Festival will take a pause for 2023 to evaluate some new directions for the festival that focus more on the work of our parent, the Somenos Marsh Wildlife Society, as we challenge some serious issues in our precious watershed. These issues will likely form a significant part of the 2024 WildWings Festival. In the meantime we are looking at continuing to host the annual WildWings Nature show this October at Just Jakes along with our nearly-famous artists painted nest box auction at the Old Firehouse Wine Bar. Stay tuned...
