Birds Canada is currently seeking new volunteers for our BC Coastal Waterbird Survey and BC Beached Bird Survey.
Just south of Vancouver, Delta sits at the doorstep of the Fraser Estuary Important Bird and Biodiversity Area, a major hub for birds migrating along the Pacific Flyway. In collaboration with Birds Canada and other partners, the City has launched the Birds Love Delta campaign to spread awareness about bird conservation in this very special place.
Imagine striding along Boundary Bay in Delta, BC and seeing 13,000 Dunlin in murmurations over the water while thousands of Northern Pintails and American Wigeons float on the shallow coastal water.
“Birdwatching kits” allow more people to enjoy the intimate relationship with nature that birdwatching brings. We wondered if it would be possible to extend this opportunity to more people by sharing kits with local libraries.
Binoculars allow you to experience nature with an almost magical intimacy. But unfortunately, not everyone has access to the tools that can enhance their experience in nature. In February, Bird Studies Canada and partners launched a new borrowing program at the Thompson-Nicola Regional Library in Kamloops, BC to put these tools in the hands of more aspiring nature enthusiasts.
