Ian Cruickshank

Leader Ian Cruickshank.

Ian has been a birder from an early age, growing up in Victoria, BC, where he has guided birding walks for Swan Lake Nature Sanctuary and the Victoria Natural History Society for the past 10 years. He has done bird and biology fieldwork across Western Canada, including with Bird Studies Canada, the Rocky Point Bird Observatory, and Parks Canada, and currently works at Pacific Rim National Park Reserve.  His knowledge of bird vocalizations is widely appreciated, and with his keen interest in all of the natural world, you'll be able to learn about plants and butterflies and amphibians and seaweeds, too, while you're birding!  If you ask him what his favourite bird is, he just might answer with Bushtit, Raven, or Nelson's Sparrow.
