Christmas Bird Count

Each year, on a Sunday about the middle of December, many Field Naturalist club members spend a day identifying and counting all birds seen on selected count areas within 15 km of Williams Lake or at home feeders.  The December 2021 count was the 54th annual count and included 39 participants counting outdoors and 16 at feeders.  At the end of the day each year, participants get together to tally the species and numbers of birds seen.  The results are provided to Birds Canada.  This has always been a great time to share what birds are in our area in early winter.  Members who have not participated before but wish to can contact us at wlfldnat@gmail.com for further information.

The 2022 count will be held on December 18.  The field sheet for the count can be downloaded here or from the Activities and Events page sidebar.
