Join in on the Ottawa-Gatineau 2012 mid-Fall Bird Count

Location: Around Ottawa, HQ at the Fletcher Wildlife Garden Interpretation Centre

3PM on Saturday, 20 October to 3PM on Sunday, 21 October

Come out for this great traditional birding event in the Ottawa-Gatineau area! You don’t need to be an “expert” birder to join in – even counting birds at your feeder from the comfort of your own home can be an important contribution. The more participants the better – to discover what’s out there in our area during the fall and winter seasons!

Volunteer for a few hours, or if feeling hardcore volunteer for the entire 24! Go solo, bring your kids or have a spotting party with friends – this is an opportunity to be involved in citizen science and develop a better understanding of local bird populations.

Ottawa is divided into zones, so you need to sign up first to receive or request an area as well as times and methodology.

The post-count compilation (free pizza, coffee, soft drinks and dessert for all participants!) will be held after the count on Sunday, at the Fletcher Wildlife Garden Interpretive Centre from approx. 4:30 – 8 pm.
