CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT
For many years Nature Regina members have participated in the annual Christmas Bird Count. Due to COVID 19 we will not be holding in person events this year but Nature Regina is still encouraging everyone to participate. The Regina count day will be happening on December 27, 2020 and the Balgonie count day is January 2, 2021.
We are partnering with Nature Saskatchewan to host the Christmas Bird Count for Kids taking place on January 2, 2021. For more information and to register, click here.
We are also encouraging as many members as possible to participate by taking part of the day to record counts of birds at their bird feeders. You don’t need to leave home to help. Use this checklist to help guide you.
Christmas Bird Counts are conducted on any one day between December 14 and January 5 inclusive. They are carried out within a 24 km diameter circle that stays the same from year to year. Christmas counts are generally group efforts, though single-observer counts can and do happen. Find more information here https://www.birdscanada.org/bird-science/christmas-bird-count
