In mid-January local Great Backyard Bird Count organizers launched a new “doorway” to the GBBC for our participants from Canada. To find it, just go to www.birdcount.ca. It’s going to look pretty familiar to those who have visited the site before, but it also contains some new content specifically for our Canadian bird watchers, contributed by Bird Studies Canada.
The new portal has a Clearwater Challenge, which encourages other communities to bump Clearwater off the top in Canada for the number of checklists submitted (a position held by Clearwater for the last three years). So how about joining the Clearwater count to help us retain top spot? Contact Hoo Ping Crane at 250-674-2518 for more information or go to the website mentioned above.
