Winter Birdwatching | Project FeederWatch
Every Friday and Saturday from November 17, 2017, to April 7, 2018, join Les amis de la montagne as a volunteer observer for the Project FeederWatch and take part in this winter-long survey of birds that visit feeders on Mount Royal.
 
Since 2005, Les amis de la montagne have been involved with the Project FeederWatch, a winter-long annual survey of birds that visit feeders in nature centres, parks and other locations across North America. The mission of the “feederwatchers” is to identify and note the species of birds they observe at the feeders. Those observations will then be used as a basis for scientific research to study bird populations.
 
A visit should take from 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the number of feeders that are being observed in Mount Royal Park, and the equipment is provided by Les amis de la montagne. A great way to enjoy nature and winter in Mount Royal Park, while contributing to the advancement of scientific knowledge.
