Bird Studies Canada is our countrys leading science-based bird conservation organization. Our mission is to conserve wild birds of Canada through sound science, on-the-ground actions, innovative partnerships, public engagement, and science-based advocacy.
Watching birds is more popular than ever! Tens of thousands of Canadians share their energy, skill, and bird observations through Bird Studies Canada's bird surveys. These "Citizen Scientists" provide a tremendous service by volunteering their time to track the health of bird populations.
Using data from our targeted research initiatives and Citizen Science programs, and in collaboration with conservation partners, our scientists monitor bird population trends, investigate declines, and recommend actions to protect the health of ecosystems we all depend on.

I love hearing from our volunteers and members about what you’re seeing, hearing, and experiencing out your window, at your lake, or wherever you are connecting with nature.
You can share your photos, stories, Citizen Science experiences, birding memories, or tips with me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can give me a call at 1-888-448-2473, extension 134. You can also find out more at birdscanada.org/calendar.
Please send your photos and stories before August 11, 2019. While you’re watching for birds at your feeder, keep an eye out for your exclusive calendar in your mailbox, too! You’ll receive it by Thanksgiving!
