News & Reports
You’re invited to explore the world of birds during these upcoming celebrations! This year’s celebrations offer an exciting mix of online and in-person events in Toronto and Vancouver, most free to attend.
Participants who go birding for conservation during the 2022 Great Canadian Birdathon will receive a t-shirt with a Bank Swallow design by Alex Nicole. We chose to highlight the Bank Swallow on this year’s shirt because, unfortunately, it needs our awareness and help.
Each winter, volunteer participants with Project FeederWatch count the birds outside their window and submit their data to help monitor and increase our understanding of bird populations. This past season, there were over 5000 participants in Canada!
Birds Canada is seeking volunteers across Canada to help monitor Common Loons and nightjars (Common Nighthawks, Common Poorwills, and Eastern Whip-poor-wills).
We are looking for fit and skilled volunteers. Survey volunteers will hike to specific waterfalls to collect data on Black Swifts and their nests (if present), and on the site habitat and threats.
This spring, Birds Canada BC staff and volunteers are gearing up to survey Long-billed Curlews. The Long-billed Curlew is one of the first birds to arrive in Canada each spring.
