On Saturday, December 15th, teams of birders will scour our islands counting every bird they can see. In past years we have recorded over 90 species in a single day. We’re hoping the weather will be fine as the count will be undertaken on that day on the Penders, Mayne and Saturna Islands. We invite all interested birders to participate and those new to birding will be paired with more experienced birders. Feeder watchers are also needed to add to our tally. The day will culminate in a Potluck Supper at the Legion at 6 p.m. where we can share our delicious dishes, submit our results and trade reports of unusual sightings. This is an excellent way to contribute to citizen science and enjoy a day outdoors in the company of friendly folks. Please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend.
