One Bird, Two Birds, Red Bird, Blue Bird... The tradition continues at Fundy National Park!
What: Fundy's 50th Annual Christmas Bird Count
When: Friday, December 18, 2015
Where: Meet at the Alma Activity Center. Use the School Street entrance.
Birdwatching enthusiasts, nature lovers, and anyone wanting to enjoy a nice winter walk in beautiful Fundy National Park are invited to participate in the Fundy Christmas Bird Count. Talk to your friends and family and travel together to the shores of the Bay of Fundy. Warm up to good food and refreshments between noon and 2:00 p.m. at the Alma Leisure Center on Main Street.
No need to be an expert as novice birdwatchers will be paired with the more experienced. Bird counts reveal scientifically important information on the distribution, species and numbers of winter birds.
Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator to register or for information at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 506-850-0412. Please register by Monday, December 14.
The count takes place within a 24-kilometer diameter territory centered at Kinnie Brook. Within the area, organizers attempt to field as many counters as they can. Participants are grouped into "parties", and with a party leader they explore a sector of the park looking for all the birds it may harbour.
Fundy's bird census is one of more than 2,000 similar counts designed to survey populations of winter birds in Canada, the United States, South and Central America.
Fundy National Park is cooperating with the Fundy Guild to bring you the 50th Fundy Christmas Bird Count.
