Thank-you to the prize donors, participants, and sponsors who made Bird Studies Canada’s 2019 Great Canadian Birdathon a success. All of your hard work and generosity will benefit Canada’s wild birds in many, many ways!
You’re invited to join some of Bird Studies Canada’s experts in Vancouver, BC; Toronto, ON; or Moncton, NB for a fun day of birding for conservation! Bird Studies Canada staff in three locations across Canada hope you can join them for their Birdathon day this May. Whether you are new to birding or an experienced Birdathoner, and whatever your age, we would love for you to join us in person for a bird walk near you.
My husband and I have always been interested in the birds around us, but it was our son who made a difference in our birding behaviour. To earn a Cub Scout badge, he built a birdfeeder and observed and recorded all activity at it for a month. Since he showed such a keen interest, we encouraged his birdwatching and participated with him.
Registration is open for the 2019 Great Canadian Birdathon. Sign up now and you can join thousands of birders and supporters giving birds a boost! Last year’s Birdathon raised over $200,000 for conservation efforts across Canada, thanks to individuals like you.
Nestled between the imposing boreal forest and ridges of Riding Mountain National Park and the shores of Lake Manitoba are three relatively unknown Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas (IBAs). Thanks to support from Bird Studies Canada’s Baillie Fund – including donations collected by the Great Canadian Birdathon’s dedicated participants – the Manitoba IBA Program received a grant in 2018 to deliver outreach in these IBAs.
