Put down your snow shovel and pick up the Winter 2018 edition of BirdWatch Canada! It’s packed with exciting research highlights to ease your aches and pains, and previews of events and opportunities to fill you with anticipation for the warmer months just around the corner.
The team at Bird Studies Canada is eager to express our appreciation for all of the hard work, long hours, and support that dedicated people like you poured into Manitoba’s first Breeding Bird Atlas. We’re delighted to announce that the online book has been launched. Please join us in celebrating this landmark Citizen Science feat by reading a feature article by our Manitoba Program Manager Dr. Christian Artuso.
In this issue, we also extend a special invitation to you to join us in Vancouver this August for the International Ornithological Congress and Vancouver International Bird Festival. Find out what lies in store at these events – there will be something for every bird lover!
You will also find a thank-you for another outstanding Great Canadian Birdathon, a national overview of the Nocturnal Owl Survey and its importance, highlights from critical research on risks to Atlantic seabirds, and more. We you hope enjoy reading about the great work for birds that you make possible.
