Gift of Project FeederWatch
By counting the birds in their neighbourhoods, Project FeederWatch participants enjoy learning about birds and watching their antics while helping our scientists monitor and protect winter bird populations. You don’t need to be an expert to get involved! Recipients will receive informative project materials, including a poster of common feeder birds for their region. Your donation of any amount to Birds Canada will provide the gift recipient with the opportunity to participate in Citizen Science programs, including Project FeederWatch. If you give $50 or more, your gift recipient will also receive a year-long subscription to our exclusive quarterly magazine, BirdWatch Canada. Sign up online or call us toll-free at 1-888-448-2473. Please order your Project FeederWatch gift by December 1st.

Bird Friendly Window Tape
Collisions with windows in residential and commercial buildings kill more than 25 million birds in Canada each year, and the majority of these collisions occur at houses. Fortunately, options for making windows safer for birds are available! One option is installing the Feather Friendly DIY product on the outside of the window. When you purchase this product and use coupon code BirdsCanada, Feather Friendly will make a donation to Birds Canada to support bird conservation. It makes a great gift for a bird-loving homeowner, and it helps birds in more ways than one!

Handmade songbird earrings, hummingbird necklace pendants, and Christmas tree bird ornaments are just a few of the handmade treasures you’ll find at bumblebee jewelry.

*** Be sure to type “Birds Canada” in the note to the seller at checkout.

Do you have a bird photographer on your holiday gift list? Consider a Birds Canada Calendar! Every photo, from every month, shares an unforgettable moment between a fellow Birds Canada supporter and the amazing species we are all working together to protect. 100% of the proceeds from the calendar support bird conservation and the quotes and stories you’ll find throughout also remind us of our shared passion. Please order your calendar by December 1st to avoid disappointment.
Gift of Bird Conservation
Do you know someone who cares about birds and making an impact? For some people, a donation made on their behalf is the most meaningful gift of all. When you make a gift donation to Birds Canada, your loved one will be happy knowing they are making a real difference to advance the understanding, appreciation, and conservation of birds across Canada and beyond. They will be invited to participate in Birds Canada Citizen Science volunteer programs if they choose, and if you give $50 or more, they will receive quarterly updates of their support in action for birds in our magazine, BirdWatch Canada. Give the gift of bird conservation.
