CHRISTMAS BIRDCOUNT

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 17, 2016

Saturna enthusiasm

Join our dedicated Saturna bird enthusi- asts, and help cover the entire island. If you’d like to participate but don’t know the species, we’ll pair you with someone who really knows their birds.

Feeder count

Often the most telling counts are around bird feeders. If you have a feeder, please sign up, spend an hour or more counting the birds that show up, fill out our counting form and submit it. It’s that easy.

Big Picture

We are part of the Southern Gulf Islands count of the national Audubon Christmas Bird Count which establishes trends in bird populations. Our count data is used by re- searchers around the world.

Wrap up at the Lighthouse Pub 6:00 pm, complimentary appetizers.

Sign up in advance to receive your official counting forms.
