"After Breakfast, What Then?"
Are You a Birder?
Guests tell us they have found a wide array of birds in Fish Creek Park - our extended garden ...
Fatbirder is the premier web resource about birds, birding & birdwatching for birders. Pathway Cottage is pleased to be listed in Fatbirder.com, 'places to stay', when birding around Calgary, Alberta,Canada. Our garden gate provides direct access into Alberta's 3000 acre Fish Creek Provincial Park and the distinctive pleasure of viewing some of the over 100 species of birds to be found here.
"As keen birdwatchers we also found Pathway Cottage an ideal location as the garden backs onto the beautiful Fish Creek Provincial Park, one of the best birding sites in Calgary. Early morning walks produced a good variety of species including woodpeckers, raptors, different kinds of sparrows and even to our amazement a family of roosting great horned owls."
