FEIS Christmas Bird Count

  • Elk Island Golf Course

    Range Road 202A 11km south of Range Road 550 Elk Island National Park, AB T0B 2R0 Canada, Lamont, AB (map)

  • Location: Elk Island National Park Golf Course.

    Time: The doors of the golf course will be open at 9:00 AM but you are welcome to stop by throughout the day.

    Bird counts are a citizen science approach to monitor bird populations and diversity across the globe. The data will be added to the 115 year history of data already collected by the Audobon Society for Christmas Bird Counts. This data is used by Scientists to determine long term trends, understand species ecology and for conservation purposes. Get involved with real science in action by coming out and searching for common, and rarer winter bird species. We will meet at the Golf Course in Elk Island National Park located near Astotin Lake. Bring your binoculars, bird books and friends. All are welcome! We will have fresh baked chili, a warm building, coffee, bird recording data sheets, fun and laughter. :) Let out that inner scientist in you!
