Birds Canada is currently seeking new volunteers for our BC Coastal Waterbird Survey and BC Beached Bird Survey.
Our team at Bird Studies Canada has just updated the British Columbia Coastal Waterbird hotspot maps. The maps now depict waterbird abundance and densities during winter, spring, and fall, based on data collected from 1999-2016.
A recent workshop aimed to develop solutions to reduce the impacts of recreational disturbance on waterbirds in the Fraser River Estuary IBA.
On September 10, Bird Studies Canada will celebrate the start of the 19th season of our British Columbia Coastal Waterbird Survey. This long-term Citizen Science monitoring program involves counting ducks, loons, grebes, gulls, and other waterbirds on the second Sunday of each month throughout the winter.
