Wildlife Speaker Series – April 26

Bird Count – Sunday

Subject: K9: Bird count this Sunday

2018 marks the 100th annual Christmas Bird Count (CBC). The CBC is a census of birds in the Western Hemisphere, and is conducted by volunteers. This year’s count will be on Sunday, December 16. The count involves monitoring your bird feeder and counting the birds that come by. Participants will be given a checklist and are asked to report the numbers at noon and final numbers at the end of the day.

Gillian Koh, Hintonburg Community Association board member, will be administering the CBC for the Kitchissippi. If you would like to participate, please email her at gillian.a.koh@gmail.com.
